Injured golfer Ken Green thanked everyone who has offered support since the fatal accident that claimed his brother, girlfriend and dog.

Green remains hospitalized and is in fair condition. He has declined Associated Press interview requests, but Friday released a statement thanking the golf community, which he called "one big family." Sources say Green had a sever injury to at least one of his legs.

The Champions Tour player from Indiantown, Fla., was originally listed in critical condition after a tire blew out on his recreational vehicle Monday afternoon near Hickory, Miss.

The RV rolled down an embankment and smashed into a tree, killing his brother, William Green, his girlfriend, Jeannie Hodgin, and Nip, Green's German shepherd.

The golfer assured well-wishers, "I'm not giving up."
