Ken Green Statement
Ken Green, who was injured June 8th in an RV accident that killed his girlfriend Jeannie, brother Billy and dog Nip, released a statement Thursday. Green is in intensive care and is expected to remain hospitalized in Mississippi for several more days.
“I want thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and support that have come my way these past few days. The golf community is like one big family, and it means so much to me to have all of you wonderful people by my side.
The pain and emptiness of losing my brother Billy, my girlfriend Jeannie and my dog Nip are enormous. They were always supportive and loving and stuck by me during my struggles. Not having them around is a tremendous loss and leaves a void that will never be filled.
I don’t know if I will ever play on the Tour again. But I do know this: I am so proud to have been a professional golfer for 30 years. I am proud of my five Tour wins and to have represented my country in the 1989 Ryder Cup. That will never be taken away from me.
You can’t always choose what happens to you in life; but you can choose how you deal with these setbacks. I’m not giving up.”
