Quote:Begay Jr. said his son was practicing on his home course in Dallas on Thursday when he felt pains in his chest and had trouble breathing. He says Begay called Apryl to come pick him up, and “she called the course to see if a doctor was there. Fortunately, there was a doctor on site. He examined him and called an ambulance.”

According to a Golf Channel news release, Begay was taken to Methodist Hospital in Dallas where a stent was inserted to unblock his right coronary artery. Begay, a Navajo from New Mexico, has a history of heart disease in the family.

“My father died of a heart attack, and I’m pretty sure there was heart disease on Notah’s mother’s side, as well,” Notah Jr. said.

it's funny how people turn out physically.  Athletes in great shape can die from heart attacks (Jim Fixx).  I have a friend who is 250+ pounds and eats fast food 3x / day.  He had a sonic exam on his heart.  3 of 4 valves completely clean, other one is 15% occluded.  His 76 year old mother stopped smoking two years ago, a 61 year habit of 2-3 packs per day.  No cancer, emphysema, lung disease, heart disease.  Replaced both hips, though.

Jim had a family history of heart disease--his father had his first heart attack at 35 and died of another one at 43.  Someone told me (perhaps apocryphally) that Jim had been ignoring chest pains during runs just before he died.  Everyone talks about lifestyle and heart disease, but about half the variance in heart disease is due to genetics.

Good to hear Notah will be okay.  He lived on my hall one year.
