A 60-year-old man was found dead Wednesday morning by workers at The Country Club in Brookline, days before the venue hosts one of professional golf's grand slam events.

A spokesman for the Norfolk County District Attorney said the man was working an overnight security shift as preparations continue for next week's U.S. Open at the golf club.

An initial investigation suggests the man may have fallen from a deck that did not have railings. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration responded to the scene to open a workplace safety investigation, the Norfolk DA said.

The medical examiner will conduct an examination.

The victim's name has not yet been released.

The U.S. Open's first round tees off Thursday, June 16. The Country Club last hosted the tournament in 1988. It's one of four major tournaments on the professional golf calendar.
