Jimmy Dunne’s wife, Susan Dunne, grew up with him in the same neighborhood. The two have been married for 30 years and share three kids.
The financial investor/businessman Jimmy Dunne will probably go down as one of the most controversial figures in the history of golf.
A board member of the PGA Tour, Dunne had the biggest hand in the merger of PGA and LIV Golf.
Speaking to the media after the merger, Jimmy also addressed the elephant in the room. How did a man who lost 66 colleagues in the 9/11 attack deal with the league backed by Saudi Arabia?
Dunne said the people with whom he dealt had nothing to do with it, and if he found out someone that was involved in it, he’ll kill them.
Since the merger of LIV and PGA, many golf fans have poked fun at the legends Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy for turning down deals from LIV. The duo together turned down the deal worth more than a billion dollars.
Jimmy Dunne Wife, Susan Dunne
Jimmy Dunne’s wife, Susan Dunne, has raised three kids with the multimillionaire investor.
In an interview with Golf Digest in 2004, Jimmy revealed that he and Susan had grown up together in the same streets of Babylon, New York.
Susan is a graduate of Lynchburg College and worked as an executive recruiter in New York City for 12 years before retiring to raise her kids. The couple tied the knot in 1992 and have celebrated 30 years of togetherness.
The couple is fairly private and away from social media. In 2016, the couple did make headlines as they donated $20 million in gifts to the University of Notre Dame. They did so for the construction of two residence halls on campus.
Susan might not be an alumnus of Notre Dame, but her husband is. He graduated from Notre Dame with a degree in economics in 1978 and is a member of the University’s Board of Trustees.
Susan is available on Instagram with the username @sueydunne but has kept her handle private.
