Jace Bugg dies of leukemia

Jace Bugg, a professional golfer diagnosed with leukemia last year, has died. He was 27.

Bugg died Thursday at St. Mary's Medical Center in Evansville, Ind., 13 months after receiving his diagnosis.

Bugg had been in contention for a spot on the PGA Tour before his diagnosis. He played on the Buy.com Tour with a victory in the 2002 Arkansas Classic after earning a spot in the tournament as a Monday qualifier.

After being hospitalized in Las Vegas and Nashville, Bugg underwent a bone marrow transplant in May in Houston.

Following the transplant, Bugg returned home to recover but had a relapse in October.
