Feinstein recovering from bypass surgery

June 30, 2009

Prolific author and Golf Digest contributing editor John Feinstein underwent successful heart bypass surgery on Monday "and is recovering well," according to an update on his website,

In a Sunday blog post, Feinstein announced that he was undergoing surgery the following morning. He said that an angiogram late last week revealed "'four to six,' blockages in my heart—one of them 100 percent."

Feinstein's most recent book was a collaboration with Rocco Mediate entitled, "Are You Kidding me?" Recently, he has been working on two books -- the fourth in a series of kids' mysteries and one on the 2003 major championships, in which the winners (Mike Weir, Jim Furyk, Ben Curtis and Shaun Micheel) and contenders largely were unknown.
