In the live telecast of the second round of the CIMB Classic, Golf Channel's Steve Sands said that Graham DeLaet's withdrawal after one hole in the opening round was due to a "bulging disc."
This is the first reported detail of DeLaet's back injury. He had surgery for a herniated disc on Jan. 3, 2010, and has dealt with mild aggravations since, but this week's WD was his first for the injury during a tournament in his career. Consider him an automatic question mark for next week's WGC-HSBC Champions. Warm, humid conditions similar to what the field is enduring in Kuala Lumpur do not aid a disc issue, so the weather is irrelevant to DeLaet's status moving forward. Oct 31 - 2:00 AM

Graham DeLaet withdrew from the CIMB Classic during his opening round due to a back injury.

The Canadian bogeyed the par-4 first hole and called it quits. It's his second mid-tournament WD in 107 PGA TOUR starts, but both occurred in his last seven (flu; 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational). If he's able, he'll try again at next week's WGC-HSBC Champions.

Graham DeLaet has elected not to compete in this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

PGA TOUR Media's Twitter page reported the news. DeLaet tied for 39th at last week's Frys.com Open. Typically, unless the Canuck is suddenly dealing with injury, illness or a personal matter, the WD winds up being reflective of a schedule change. Given his ilk, especially among his fellow countrymen, it would be odd if more information about today's decision wasn't revealed. Stay tuned.

Graham DeLaet finished in a tie for 18th place at the 2010 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and returns for another chance this week.

The Canuck teed it up here last year, but his returns weren't quite a fruitful as 2010, missing the cut after opening with an even-par 72. He finished T39 at last week's season opener, but failed to post a sub-70 round along the way. His flat stick held him back as it often does. He ranked 97th last week in strokes gained: putting after finishing 118th on TOUR last season. Like most weeks, gamers should consider DeLaet a high upside pick, but shouldn't get their hopes up unless his putter starts working.

Graham DeLaet posted a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the BMW Championship and enters the final round tied for seventh at 5-under 205.

After opening with back-to-back 68s, the Canadian took a slight step back on Saturday. He circled three birdies, highlighted by a 20'7" putt on the par-3 12th hole, and squared two bogeys on the afternoon. Known as an elite ball-striker, his six (of 14) fairways and 13 GIR were a little less than expected. He is currently projected to finish 32nd in the FedExCup standings, so he needs a solid finale to lock up his spot in the field at East Lake next week.

Graham DeLaet chased his opening 68 at the BMW Championship with another in today's second round to post 4-under 136 at the break, good for first possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

DeLaet went out in the first threesome off the first tee at Cherry Hills today. Despite overnight rain that softened the course and the fact that he landed 14 greens in regulation, he still squared three bogeys, including a walk-off three-putt from 42'1" at the par-4 18th hole. His longest of five birdies measured 23'10" and 34'11" at Nos. 5 and 9, respectively.
Sep 5 - 6:05 PM

Graham DeLaet posted a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the BMW Championship, finishing just one stroke in arrears of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

After opening the FedExCup Playoffs MC-T50, the Canuck is 43rd in points and in dire need of a strong week in Colorado to advance. He didn't necessarily deserve today's score since he hit only nine greens in regulation, but he won't turn it down. DeLaet circled six birdies at Cherry Hills today, including conventional conversions from 30'7" and 10'3" at the 14th and 18th holes, respectively. He also holed out from the rough for birdie from six yards away at the par-4 fourth.
Sep 4 - 7:31 PM

Graham DeLaet putted his way to a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and sits at 1-under 212 with 18 holes to play.

Known as an elite ball-striker, it was the putter that spurred DeLaet on in his third lap around TPC Boston. With the exception of a two-putt birdie on the par-5 second hole, his other five birdies all were worth of applause. He found the bottom of the cup from 10'8", 10'4", 10'5", 23'9" and 9'9" on the par-4 fourth, par-5 seventh, par-4 13th, par-4 15th and par-5 18th respectively. The week he puts together four rounds of putting on that level will be the week he nabs his breakthrough victory. He gained well over two strokes with the flat stick on Sunday after losing strokes to the field on Friday and Saturday.
Aug 31 - 11:58 AM

Graham DeLaet stumbled all over the place in his opening round of The Barclays, settling for a 7-over-par 37-41=78.

His tee-to-green precision and recent form projected a big week. And with top fives in the last two editions of this tournament (albeit not at Ridgewood Country Club), he's had no issue making an early statement. Today, he split only seven (of 14) fairways and found 10 greens in regulation. DeLaet circled three birdies, including rolls of 23'9" and 24'10" at the seventh and 10th holes, respectively, but he penciled in five bogeys, one double and a triple. The carnage included a penalty following his tee ball at the par-4 11th (site of the triple bogey) and six whiffs from inside eight feet. The only bright side is that he arrived sitting 28th in points, so he's a virtual lock to advance to the BMW Championship regardless of his results the first two weeks.

Graham DeLaet turned in a 3-under-par 36-32=68 at Valhalla Golf Club in the third round of the PGA Championship and shares 10th at 8-under 205 through 54 holes.

After the Canuck swallowed two bogeys and a double bogey to just one birdie over his first seven holes, he became an afterthought. He battled back with six birdies over his final 11 holes, including four consecutive beginning with the par-4 eighth, to regain relevance. Five of his birdies fell from between 11 and 18 feet, which is a bit of a surprise. DeLaet is known as one of the best, if not the best, ball-strikers on the PGA TOUR, but his flat stick generally holds him back. He trails Rory McIlroy by five strokes entering Sunday.
Aug 9 - 7:27 PM

Graham DeLaet added a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the PGA Championship to reach the midpoint in 5-under 137, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

DeLaet experienced quite a bit of the gamut for one walk around Valhalla. He poured in six birdies, three of which from at least 11 feet. The longest of the conventional measured 17'6" at the par-4 17th hole. He also holed out twice from just off the putting surface, doing at at Nos. 3 and 4. Call it evening the score with the golf gods since he four-putted the par-4 second from just 27'7" for double bogey.
Aug 8 - 2:35 PM

Graham DeLaet turned in a 2-under-par 34-35=69 for his opening round of the PGA Championship.

This is a relief after he had to call it quits before the final at Firestone on Sunday due to the flu. DeLaet set the tone right out of the gate at Valhalla today with a birdie conversion from 15'6" at the par-4 first hole. He exchanged four birdies with three bogeys the rest of the way. His most impressive birdie was a 10-yard hole-out from off the green at the par-4 sixth. He also rolled another in conventionally from 11'1" at 16. The Canuck tagged on a par save from 13'1" at the par-4 ninth for good measure. He's in the books just four strokes off the overnight lead.
Aug 7 - 8:10 PM

Graham DeLaet withdrew from the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational prior to his final round, citing the flu.

The Canadian was scheduled to tee off at 10:35 a.m. ET. He was in the hunt with rounds of 67 and 69 at the par-70 Firestone Country Club to start the week, but inexplicably faded with a 76 on Saturday. With an illness, the poor round makes a lot more sense. He is in the field for the PGA Championship later this week, and his recovery should be closely monitored as it relates to his chances at Valhalla.
Aug 3 - 11:42 AM

Graham DeLaet backed up his opening 67 at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a 1-under-par 33-36=69.

He hit only 11 greens in regulation today, but managed to bury five birdies, including a 25-footer at the par-3 15th hole. Four bogeys stung, but DeLaet thwarted another with a par conversion from 15'6" at the par-4 first. He walked off with consecutive bogeys at 8 and 9, so that disappointment may linger. At 4-under 136, he's three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 1 - 1:23 PM

Graham DeLaet crafted a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

While a T7 at the RBC Canadian Open is disappointing only because it occurred in his national championship, the Canuck promptly turned the page and carried over the form that has led to seven top 10s this season. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation in his debut at Firestone. DeLaet circled three birdies including rolls of 21'9" and 20'1" at Nos. 1 and 7, respectively. He signed his card sitting three strokes off the overnight lead.
