Bob Rosburg, who won the 1959 PGA Championship and spent three decades with ABC Sports, died at 82. The PGA Tour said Rosburg died Thursday at home in Palm Springs, Calif. He had been battling cancer, but longtime friend Sal Johnson reported that Rosburg died of head injuries after a fall. Rosburg won six times on the tour, but he achieved greater fame through television. Rosburg, known as “Rossie” by his colleagues, was hired by ABC Sports in 1974. Instead of sitting in a tower, he called the action from the course.
