Jesper Parnevik is set to make a comeback at the Sony Open following a series of injury setbacks.
The Swede, 45, is renowned for his flamboyant choice of golf clothing and will be looking to make a big impression in Hawaii when the tournament tees off tomorrow (Thursday January 12th).
Despite not playing much golf in the last few years, he has been made eligible for the event as a result of being among the top 50 in the all-time earnings list on the US PGA Tour.
Parnevik reached his peak in the 2000-01 season, when he spent 38 weeks in the top ten of the world rankings.
However, he continues to be plagued by hip and vertebrae injuries, putting a limit on the amount of tournaments he can take part in without risking his long-term health.
"This is something I'm going to have to deal with for the rest of my life, whether I keep playing golf or not," Parnevik told the PGA Tour site this week.
"If I can't play golf because of this, then I can't play. But I'm going to try my hardest to play."
