Career Highlights

2011: Returned to the Champions Tour for the first time since July 2010 (Dick's Sporting Goods Open) when he teamed with good friend Mark Calcavecchia at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. In the Legends Division, the duo carded a three-round total of 15-under 201 in the better-ball competition to finish 31st. 2010: Made an inspirational return to competition when he teamed with Mike Reid to finish T26 at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. Appearance in Savannah was his first in a TOUR-sanctioned event since losing his lower-right leg 10 months prior...Also played in the Regions Charity Classic and finished T73...Last appearance of the season came at the Dicks Sporting Goods Open but he was forced to withdraw after two rounds due to excruciating leg pain. 2009: Had his season tragically cut short when he had his lower-right leg amputated in June following a fatal RV accident in Mississippi that killed his girlfriend, his brother and his dog while returning from the Triton Financial Classic in Austin, TX. Went through extensive rehabilitation and was fitted for a prosthetic limb...Prior to the accident, he registered his best Champions Tour performance when he birdied the last hole to finish solo seventh at the AT&T Champions Classic. Performance at Valencia CC was his best effort since a T3 at the Nationwide Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am at The Cliffs in 2002. On the PGA TOUR, Green's last top-10 performance before his showing at Valencia was a T7 at the 1996 U.S. Open at Oakland Hills CC. 2008: Debuted on the Champions Tour at the Senior British Open at Royal Troon and was T54 in his first start on the circuit...Made six other appearances in his rookie season. Best effort was a T47 at the Administaff Small Business Classic at The Woodlands.

Personal

Started playing golf at age 12 in Honduras, where his father was principal of the American School and only sports choices were golf and soccer...Once rescued his dog, Nip, a German shepherd, from an attack by an alligator in Florida...In 1996, he bowled a perfect 300 game.
