He was playing in a tournament when symptoms first presented themselves. From AP-
Joey Sindelar remained hospitalized Sunday after having a pulmonary embolism during the third round of the Charles Schwab Cup Championships.
The Champions Tour said Sindelar’s condition had improved but doctors at Sonoma Valley Hospital wanted to keep the 51-year-old for further observation.
Sindelar withdrew Saturday and was taken to the hospital for dizziness and shortness of breath after playing the 204-yard, par-3 fourth hole. Sindelar rested in between holes and tried to play the fifth before withdrawing.
Sindelar was a two-time winner of my all-time favorite PGA Tour tournament, the now defunct B.C. Open. I wish him a speedy recovery.
In 2005 I almost died from a PE. In my case, I was struck by a saddle emboli which has a high mortality rate. By some miracle I pulled through, but only after spending 10 days in the hospital.
