Kris Blanks To Make Return At Playoffs

Kris Blanks has missed most of the 2013 PGA Tour season while he has been recovering from a shoulder injury and surgery. Up to this point, Blanks only teed it up once when he missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open back in February.

Well, the sabbatical has finally ended as the Palm Beach Gardens resident announced on twitter earlier this week that is using his medical extension and returning to golf in order to try and keep his PGA Tour card for another year.

Blanks will participate in the Tour Finals starting next week. The four week playoff event is comprised of golfers that finished 126-200 in FedEx Cup points and missed out on the FedEx Cup playoffs as well as those that finished 1-75 in earnings on the tour this season. In addition, golfers with medical extensions are also eligible to participate.

The top 25 in points at the end of the four week playoff will all earn or retain PGA Tour cards for the 2014 season. The Tour Finals begin August 29 at Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Fort Wayne, Indiana and wrap up with the Tour Championship which will be held September 26-29 at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach.
