Marc Cayuex returned to play golf publicly at today's pro-am for the Zimbabwe Open.
Cayeux's comeback from a fatal collision on Sept. 25, 2010 has taken a considerable amount of time. However, only today was it revealed that he's had 21 surgeries, and he's not done yet. "It feels good, but the pain I go through is the hard bit," he said. "I’ve probably got two more operations to go [hernia; left ankle] and I’m hoping they will take a lot of pain from walking, and making it a whole lot easier to walk and play 18 holes." The Zimbabwean carded an impressive 75 today, but his primary goal is to merely walk 18 holes, much less accept the grinding life of a touring professional again. "After shooting 75 today, I felt there was something there, but the pain I have to go through. ... Look, it’s getting better, but you’ve got to stretch yourself to get further and further, and I don’t want to rush back by overdoing it. Sometimes, when I have played, the pain is excruciating and I can’t walk the next day."
