Graham DeLaet (Boise State) returns to the PGA Tour on Thursday, playing in the Barracuda Championship in Reno.

DeLaet, 34, has been battling back and anxiety issues, and hasn’t played on the Tour since May 20.

He’s the No. 2 ranked Canadian player in the world and in line to qualify for the Summer Olympics in Rio.

“It’s something I hope I get to experience,’’ he told the CBC News.
