Peterson recently played his first tournament in 11 months, making his comeback at the Safeway Open – where he missed the cut. He had surgery on his left hand last winter and clearly isn’t worried about getting re-injured.

This is probably the reason I can't feel the left side of my body today. #day3

Who is anyone to tell Peterson how to live his life? Certainly not me. But I’m surprised to see him partaking in some alcohol-infused acrobatics – something you wouldn’t see anywhere else on TOUR. Then again, Rory also belongs to this “live your life” camp – as we saw when he injured his ankle playing football – showing that only these guys know what’s best for their bodies.

Peterson has a growing fanbase, in part due to this Happy Gilmore he tried at a tournament last year…
