PGA of America Vice President Suzy Whaley issued the following statement on the passing of Hubert Green:
The PGA of America is deeply saddened by the passing of Hubert Green, who epitomized what it is to be a champion within the boundaries of a golf course and then extend that spirit to bravely face all of life’s challenges.
For more than 40 years, Hubert was a celebrated member of the PGA family. His joy in playing golf spread to giving back to others and setting a standard of what it means to cherish life’s daily blessings.
Hubert said that he never judged his career against others. "I was just playing golf." If we can draw from Hubert Green’s example, we all will have a life well played.
