Canadian golfer Graham DeLaet aiming for healthy and successful PGA Tour season
Canadian professional golfer Graham DeLaet has one main goal in his new PGA Tour season.
The 34-year-old knows if he can do that, then success on the course can follow in 2017.
“I feel like when my back is good, I can compete with the best golfers in the world,” DeLaet said.
“When it’s not, I can’t, because there’s shots I know I’m capable of and my body won’t let me do it, so that’s kind of the frustrating thing,” DeLaet said.

After spending the last two months rehabbing a back injury, DeLaet is set to make his 2017 debut this week at the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, CA.
DeLaet hasn’t played since the first week of November during the PGA Tour wraparound season at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas, when his back locked up when he woke up ahead of the final round.
