Venturi died at a hospital in Rancho Mirage, Calif., his son told the San Francisco Chronicle. He recently had developed a series of infections in his back and required surgery.
Venturi started his golf career in the 1950s, and as an amateur, he almost won the 1956 Masters. He won the U.S. Open in 1964.
