Graham DeLaet is preparing for his return to the PGA Tour.

The Saskatchewan-born golfer underwent microdiscetomy surgery last year after a stem cell injection treatment in late 2017 failed to help regenerate two discs in his back.

He said in July 2018 that it was the same procedure he had on a different disc in 2011.

DeLaet, 37, said he expects to be back on the tour this fall after not having played in a PGA Tour event since October 2017.

Tom Hanks Was Denied A Beer At Music Festival Because He Didn’t Have An ‘Over-21’ ID Bracelent

Tom Hanks Was Denied A Beer At Music Festival Because He Didn’t Have An ‘Over-21’ ID Bracelent During his recent appearance on “The Graham Norton Show”, Tom Hanks regaled the audience with a hilarious anecdote that he’d been saving specifically for that talk show. Chatting with Norton and fellow guests Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal, the “Toy Story 4” star recounted being at the recent Stagecoach Music Festival, where his wife, Rita Wilson, made her singing debut. While hanging out backstage during the excessively hot afternoon, Hanks ordered a beer — which the staff refused to serve him. The reason: he wasn't wearing a special Stagecoach wristband to prove he was over 21, a festival requirement in order to be served alcohol.

“I’m going to play a couple of Web Tour events in July and August to kind of prep and get ready for the start of the season in September,” DeLaet told Global News on Wednesday.

“That’s the goal, and I think that’s very realistic. I’ve been feeling better and better all the time and I’m looking forward to getting back out there.”

He said there has been a bright spot during his recovery.

“The silver lining is I’ve spent a lot of time with my family that I otherwise would not have,” DeLaet said.

DeLaet’s best finish in a PGA Tour event is third, which he has done three times – once in 2013 and twice more the following year.

His best finish in a major championship came in 2017 when he tied for seventh in the PGA Championship.

DeLaet represented Canada at the 2016 Rio Olympics and earned a spot at the 2013 Presidents Cup.

Nicklaus: If healthy, Tiger 'probably will break my record'.
"They stopped asking me for a while." Jack Nicklaus took a few years off from fielding questions about whether Tiger Woods would ever break Nicklaus' record of 18 major wins. But after Woods won the 2019 Masters for his 15th victory at a major, the conversation started back up, and Nicklaus believes the record is in reach - barring one big unknown. "Who knows how long his body is going to stay together," Nicklaus said Tuesday at the Memorial Tournament, the PGA Tour event he hosts. "(When) you've had as many operations as he's had ... He may be solid enough that it's all right, and if he is, I think he probably will break my record.
