Truth & Rumors: Jeff Klauk to return at Boise Open after brain surgery
Tour veteran Jeff Klauk, just five months after undergoing brain surgery, will make his return to competitive golf at next week's Boise Open on the Web.com Tour, according to Sean Martin of Golfweek.
Klauk had the operation to pinpoint the source of his complex partial seizures. He elected not to have a second, more invasive, surgery to remove the part of his brain that is causing the epileptic seizures, though, and is using medication to treat his episodes.
The medications' side effects – dizziness and blurry vision – have been an issue, he said. The Boise Open will be one of five allowed rehab starts under his medical extension.
"I'm still trying to figure out the side effects of the medicine," Klauk said. "That's the stuff I'm struggling with. I'm just going to see if I can play on it all. That's why they have these rehab starts. We're still experimenting with different doses to figure out how to feel my best."
Klauk, a two-time winner on the Web.com Tour, gets five rehab starts as part of his medical extension, and this will be the first of those. The 34-year-old Floridian played his college golf at Florida Southern. He was fourth at the 2009 Honda Classic and tied for fourth at the 2009 Justin Timberlake Shriners Open.
