Less than a month ago, Ken Green returned to the Champions Tour after about the roughest stretch a person can go through. That was a team event. This time, it's Ken and Ken alone.

Starting Friday, Green will be back on the Champions Tour, teeing it up at the Regions Charity Classic after a year that he will be happy to put behind him.

To recap, Green lost his son, brother and longtime girlfriend, and had to get his right leg amputated after a car accident that claimed two of the three listed along with his dog, Nip, a best friend to Ken.

It will be good to see Ken back out competing, even if he isn't that concerned about how he plays.

Green admitted that he is nervous on how his leg will handle the 54 hole tournament.

At the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf in late April, Ken teamed up with Mike Reid to finish tied for 26th after rounds of 67-66-71.

No matter how he finishes, the journey Green has endured has been an incredibly tough one, and I'm sure returning to competitive golf just means that life is finally starting to shape back to as normal as can be expected.
