Graham hopes forreturn after heart trouble
Australian golfer David Graham says he intends to return to the seniors tour as he recovers from heart trouble.
Graham, 58, suffered heart failure during a tournament near Boston three weeks ago and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure.
But the former US Open and US PGA winner has been released from hospital and is resting at his home in Whitefish, Montana.
"I will be out of competitive golf indefinitely, but am hoping to return to the Champions (over 50s) Tour in the future," Graham said in a statement released through the Australasian PGA Tour here on Monday.
Graham was planning on playing in the centenary Australian Open at The Australian club here in November, but that trip appears in doubt.
Graham, who won the Australian Open at that course in 1977, is the only Australian to win more than one of the four majors - the 1979 PGA and the 1981 US Open.
"I would like to thank everyone for their phone calls, notes and prayers for my health and wellbeing," he said in the statement.
