Hall of Fame golfer Hubert Green has died at the age of 71.

Green won the 1977 U.S. Open and the 1985 PGA Championship in a career that included 19 PGA Tour victories and four on the seniors circuit.

He won his U.S. Open despite a threat against his life that he found out about after 14 holes of the final round. He chose to continue playing and held on to the lead. The PGA Tour announced that Green died Tuesday after battling throat cancer.
