Bud Cauley's first question to the doctor was, "Tell me why I can't breathe." (Answer: His lung had collapsed, and five ribs were broken. His leg had also been fractured in a terrible car accident that involved three other people.)
His second? "When will I be able to golf again?"
It was about three and a half months before he took his first practice swings. He resumed competitive golf shortly after that, and now he's back at the Memorial Tournament...close to the site of the crash.
"I haven't had any bad thoughts or anything as far as what happened last year," he said. "But I don't think I'm going to go drive by to test it."
Hear what else he had to say about his remarkable return below:
