O'Hern also making comeback

You haven't heard a lot about Nick O'Hern in the last year or so. The man perhaps best known for beating Tiger Woods in the 2007 World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship has been battling knee issues for years, and it finally came to a head last summer.

O'Hern played in the 2010 THE PLAYERS Championship and was done for the year after injuring his knee during the event.

O'Hern
He came back for the 2011 PGA TOUR opener but hasn't finished in the top 25 in eight tries this year.

The Aussie, a left-hander who has used a long putter for years, is 6 under after 15 holes on Thursday at Redstone. He has the lead outright; Steve Stricker briefly reached 6 under before a bogey on the 16th.

O'Hern needs a big week. He has to earn $312,690 to retain full status on TOUR after being forced to take a medical extension.
