ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) --- Notah Begay will return to his broadcasting job next week, one month after suffering a heart attack.

Golf Channel said Wednesday that he will serve as an on-course reporter for its coverage of the NCAA men's golf championships, which starts Monday.

The 41-year-old Begay suffered the heart attack April 24. Doctors at Methodist Hospital in Dallas diagnosed a 100 percent blockage of his right coronary artery. A stent was inserted to unblock the artery.

Begay is in his second full year as a TV analyst. He won twice on the PGA Tour, in 1999 and 2000.

A Navajo from New Mexico, Begay has a history of heart disease in his family. He hopes to expand his NB3 Foundation's mission to address health and wellness issues among Native American youth.
