Notah Begay had a heart attack

12 posts in this topic

But expected to make a full recovery.

Quote:

Former PGA Tour player and current Golf Channel analyst Notah Begay III, 41, suffered a heart attack last week in Dallas, according to a report from the network.

Begay, who wrote an article on Tiger Woods in Golf Digest's May edition, reportedly suffers from a family history of heart disease, but is expected to make a full recovery. On Tuesday, he issued the following statement through Golf Channel:

"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."

Carpe the diem folks. Eat real food, eat veggies and fruit. Even only 1/2 hour of daily walking does wonders.

Hope he does well. 41 is WAY to young to have to even think about stuff like that.

I had a friend die of a heart attack at the young age of 38..

Scary stuff. I hope he's okay. I don't think I realized he's three years older than Tiger. I remember that they were roommates, I didn't realize they were that far apart though.

Yeah, hope he gets well too but if he had considered  his genetic  history maybe he would have been more proactive. Advice on good diet and exercise is totally wasted if he only reads about it; and DOES nothing. Am also so sorry for those, who after 30 years of smoking, live on the bed due to emphysema or worse.   The 'good life' as explained to you by the consumer lobby of restaurants, grocers and food processors is probably a great lie.

Rant over.  Let's hope he does change his life and helps lead others to betterment.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
