Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel: Playing Through ft. Ken Green (Clip) | HBO


BRYANT GUMBEL:
This is Kenny Green.
Now 61 years old,
he was once expected
to win an endless series
of golf titles.
I’ve lost 35 yards off the tee, and probably a club and half
with the iron. GUMBEL:
Instead, he has spent his years
dealing with a seemingly
endless series of losses:
his leg, his wife, his son,
his brother, his career,
his money, his future.Yet, for all that he has endured
as an adult,
it turns out that
his childhood years
were even worse
than anyone ever imagined.
It only came to light
last month,
when Green published a book
about his improbable life
and dropped a bombshell…revealing a secret he thought
he would take to his grave.
I had no intentions
of ever telling a soul. GUMBEL: It would seem to me
that’s something… that was bursting inside you
and dying to come out. No? You know, I– I…
I go back to those words that my father told me. “Kid, I’m sorry. You did nothing wrong, and don’t ever tell
a living soul.” ♪ (“REAL SPORTS” THEME PLAYS) ♪
