SMU officials say the body of a student was found about 12:30 p.m. Friday. The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Tuesday that the student was Green, a 21-year-old sophomore. Campus officials said no foul play was involved and an investigation is under way.
It's the second family tragedy in eight months for Ken Green, who won five PGA Tour events between 1985-89 and played on the 1989 Ryder Cup team. Green had his lower right leg amputated last June after a recreational vehicle accident in which his brother and girlfriend were killed.
Green acknowledged his son's death on his personal blog on Tuesday.
