Japanese legend Teruo Sugihara, 74, dies #golf #golfweek

Japanese golf legend Teruo Sugihara, who won 63 times worldwide in a career that spanned more than 50 years, died Wednesday after a long battle with prostate cancer, according to published reports. He was 74. Sugihara had played professionally even after his diagnosis in 1997. In 2006, at age 68, he became the oldest player to make the cut in a top-tier Japanese tour event. His final appearance came at the 2010 Mizuno Open. "Mr. Sugihara taught me the rigors of golf since I was young," said Isao Aoki, according to The Times of India . "It is really regretful that we have lost Mr. Sugihara, the most senior active player in golf." Said Jumbo Ozaki: “I can only guess that he fought a tough battle with the disease. May he rest in peace.”
