Jason Dufner, winner of the 2013 PGA Championship, will be teeing it up this week for the first time since August.
Back in August while defending the PGA Championship at Valhalla, Dufner was forced to withdraw due to a nagging neck injury.
This week he makes his return, playing in the Perth International in Australia.
Dufner hasn't played in 11 weeks, so he isn't expecting all that much out of his game this week.
"I wasn't too interested in golf or what was going on in the golfing world during that time period," Dufner told the Associated Press. "I didn't watch one minute of the Ryder Cup. I got into a lot of different things. It was disappointing that I was injured, but it wasn't miserable for me."
Dufner's main goal this week, he said, is to play pain-free.
"I feel like if I can play 18 holes without any pain, that'll be a good thing," he said. "Get rolling in the right direction again."
