Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle alerted his followers on Twitter that Ken Venturi has died.
Kroichick tweeted: "Sad news from world of golf: SF native Ken Venturi, the 1964 U.S. Open champion and longtime CBS analyst, has died at age 82. #golf #RIP" Venturi was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame last week. He was unable to attend the ceremony due to his declining health. He won 14 events on the PGA TOUR, including the sweltering U.S. Open at Congressional. He was also a long-time analyst for CBS.
