Golf star Robert Seosite checked in to the hospital Thursday morning after suffering an acute stroke.
The Associated Press first reported Seosite’s condition Friday morning.
Seosite, 65, had been practicing with a club at a resort in Southern California.
Seoso said he was playing a round with his wife and three kids and his golf swing slipped from his fingers.
“I was playing with my wife, my kids, my wife and a friend,” he said.
“He had a bad feeling and just hit the ball.
I was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s a bad fall.’
And he hit the club, and it hit his arm and he died.”
Segalote’s wife and children are in stable condition, Seoso’s father said.
Seosite was known for his work as a member of the Los Angeles Police Department and had played professional golf for more than 40 years.
The golf star had been in the hospital since Saturday, when he went into cardiac arrest and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
He had been working out in his home in Santa Clarita, California, with his son and two dogs.
The golfer’s wife, Michelle Seoso, said he had been struggling with depression for years and had recently been taking medication for anxiety and depression.
“He was working on a book and he had some things he was going to write about life, and I thought he was really going to share some things,” Michelle Seosons mother, Patricia Seoso told the AP.
“We had no idea he was having a stroke and that he was losing his life,” Patricia Seosos said.
“This was his last day and we were so devastated.”‘
