Hey Kenny,

I am so proud of you and your spirit during this challenge. I know you will succeed wonderfully in your quest to play our game again. I can’t wait to watch you swing a club! You shouldn’t be surprised at the outpouring of love and support you are receiving from your fellow Tour players, after all we are a great big family out there. The support I received after my accident certainly helped me through the tough times. There will be tough times, but your resolve and sense of humour will serve you well. We are all pulling for you and praying for you. The moment you step back out on that golf course, the whole golf world will be standing and applauding you!! The tears will fill an ocean. Keep up the great work! We anxiously await more good news.

Your friend,

Jim Nelford

    More from the great “Green” north – Oakville Ontario. Is this the Canadian page? I was reminded of the wet weather back in 88 as I spent most of my weekend at the Canadian Open in the rain again 21 years later. Ken, similar to your win at the rain soaked 88 Canadian Open in a playoff, just an hour ago another Green (Nathan), won under similar circumstances. I was aware of the accident , your loss and the challenge facing you and after the completion of the open I went to the internet to check for any news of your recovery. I trust and hope that the coincidental win by a golfer named Green will bring some additional awareness to your comeback drive. Very Best wishes from another Canuck.

    Kenny: You are a true fighter, no wonder you have excelled as a pro golfer. Although I have only met you the one time you have truly left a big impression on me as a true gentleman and I am proud to be able to call you my “friend”. I know you will rebound from this devastating setback and I cannot wait to see you back on the links again kickin’ ass.
    Just so you know it all of us up here in Canada are praying for your speedy recovery.
    Larry (dad) Walker
