Notah Begay is recovering from a heart attack
Golf Channel analyst Notah Begay had a health scare last week in Dallas but the good news is that it looks like he's on to a full recovery.
Golf Channel analyst Notah Begay -- a former Tiger Woods teammate at Stanford and someone who has kept the public abreast of Tiger's status amid back surgery -- had a heart attack in Dallas last week.
According to Golf Channel Begay is expected to return to work pretty soon.
"Begay, 41, has a family history of heart disease and was taken to Methodist Hospital where cardiologist Dr. Mark Jenkins inserted a stent to unblock his right coronary artery. Because the procedure was performed quickly, Begay is expected to make a full recovery. He plans to resume his NBC and Golf Channel duties within a few weeks."
Pretty scary stuff for someone so embedded in the golf community but he sounds in good spirits.
"I'm extremely grateful for the expert care I received from Dr. Jenkins and his staff," Begay said. "I anticipate a full recovery and feel lucky to be at home resting with my family. I appreciate the outpouring of well wishes I've received from family, friends and fans and I will be back covering golf once I'm fully recovered.”
