SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Ken Green feels so good about his return to golf after a year of tragedy that he might play in next week's Champions Tour event.

Green is playing in the Legends of Golf this weekend, a two-man competition where he was partnered with Mike Reid at Savannah Harbor Golf Resort.

After two birdies Friday, Green is thinking about next week's Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic.

He also wants to play an upcoming individual 54-hole event, the Dick's Sporting Goods Classic in Endicott, N.Y.

Since last June, Green suffered through the car crash deaths of his longtime girlfriend and his brother. Green's injuries were so severe in the accident that he chose to have the lower part of his leg amputated so he'd could play on tour again.

In January, his son was found dead in his SMU dorm room.
