PGA Tour Winner, Bart Bryant’s Car Accident Led to Death
With the most profound sorrow, we have to inform you of a three-time PGA Tour winner who sadly passed away. Bart Bryant’s car accident was confirmed as the reason for his passing on June 1, 2022, at the age of 59.
He was born on November 18, 1962, in Gatesville, Texas, the U.S. He won PGA Tour three times, the first time that he won the prize was at the age of 41 when he seized the 2004 Valero Texas Open in his 187th start.
The first two days at the Texas Opening, Bryant shot a pair of 67s, then held at the Resort Course at La Cantera Golf Club. He followed with a spectacular third round and also tried to make a record, by shooting a 60 — only the fourth time in the history of that event such a score had been posted.
“One tournament does not make a career, This is just the beginning, that’s what I’d like to think,” Bryant said.
Finally, in the final round, he shot another 67 and won first place. His first victory was in 2004 and the second one in 2005 when he seized The Memorial by one shot over Fred Couples and four over Tiger Woods. In the first round, he shot a 62 and won the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake by six over Woods.
Also, Bryant won the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open on the PGA Tour Champions circuit twice, in 2013 and 2018. His brother, Brad Bryant was a golfer too and has won on the PGA Tour.
Cathy Bryant was his first wife who sadly passed away five years ago, just 11 months after being diagnosed with brain cancer. He shared his feeling about her wife’s death and said:
“We did a lot of talking about it. So when the time came, we weren’t overwhelmed. We were happy we were all with her. We had prepared and I think that helps us all a lot. Not that we’re not still grieving and we will for a while.”
The couple had two daughters called Kristen and Michelle Bryant. After that, he got married to Donna Bryant.
