Jeff Klauk is Returning

Many people believe that if someone is really good at something, despite how long his absence could be, when he comes back, he would still have it. Could this happen to be true for Jeff Klauk?

The 34-year-old Klauk is back on the teeing zone for the Web.com Tour after 14 months of absence due to health reasons. He fought against multiple medical examinations, procedures and medications. Way back in 2006, Klauk was already diagnosed with epilepsy but not until Christmas Eve of 2010 did he experience the worst side effects.

“I’m still the same person I was before, except occasionally I have these 20-second space-outs that happen at night most of the time,” said Klauk during an interview with PGATour.com. The same spacing out happened that Christmas Eve of 2010 when he was on the steering wheel heading to church with his family. The incident led him to a series of medical examinations. He was found to be suffering from complex partial seizures.

PGATour.com reported that Klauk went through a medical procedure where his skull was infused with 108 electrodes to determine where the seizures come from.

Returning to the golf course once again for the Albertsons Boise Open after the incident, Klauk says, “My golf game hasn’t gone anywhere. It’s just a process of getting my golf game back. There’s no reason I shouldn’t play well this week. My game’s good.”

Prior to the incident, Klauk was a two-time amateur NCAA Division II Individual Champion plus two Web.com Tour victories in 2003 and 2008.
