Former PGA Tour player and current Golf Channel analyst Notah Begay III, 41, suffered a heart attack last week in Dallas, according to a report from the network.

Begay, who wrote an article on Tiger Woods in Golf Digest's May edition, reportedly suffers from a family history of heart disease, but is expected to make a full recovery. On Tuesday, he issued the following statement through Golf Channel:

"I'm extremely grateful for the expert care I received from Dr. Jenkins and his staff," Begay said. "I anticipate a full recovery and feel lucky to be at home resting with my family. I appreciate the outpouring of well wishes I've received from family, friends and fans and I will be back covering golf once I'm fully recovered."
