Argentine to golfer dies at 67

Eduardo Romero, the Argentine golfer who won European Tour events over three decades, has died. He was 67.

The tour announced Romero’s death on Monday, without giving any more details. Argentina’s national news agency, Telam, cited cancer as the cause of death.

Nicknamed “El Gato” (The Cat), Romero was best known in golf for winning eight titles on the tour between 1989 and 2002.

His first was at the Trophée Lancôme in France and the last was at the Scottish Open, when he won in a play-off to become at that time the third oldest winner on the tour — just three days before his 48th birthday. -AP
