YOU may remember Kevin Kisner was banned from his beloved Palmetto Golf Club following a video he starred in for Vice Sports, but now that sanction has been revoked.
The original video showed Kisner and his friends drinking and racing golf carts around the course, however, he told The Sun News in Myrtle Beach his ban has been lifted.
“I’m back in,” Kisner said. “It was short-lived after we had a few discussions and cooler heads prevailed, I think.”
The PGA Tour winner prepared for last week’s Wells Fargo Championship and this week’s Players at Sage Valley Golf Club, which is just 20 minutes from Aiken's Palmetto.
The result is a good one for Kisner, more so, because he is building a house on the South Carolina course – just a short drive from Augusta National Golf Club.
“I haven’t been there, but I’m allowed in [Palmetto Golf Club],” Kisner said.
“It was super odd. I was totally blindsided by it. I think we’ve learned and we’ll move past it."
Watch the documentary below:
Kisner missed the cut at Quail Hollow last week after rounds of 75 and 72, though, despite the poor recent results he should be confident heading into the Players at TPC Sawgrass after he lost in a playoff to Rickie Fowler last year.
The 32-year-old’s only victory on Tour was at the RSM Classic at Sea Island in November. His recent results, however, have been mixed after missing the cut in two of his last five and not one top 10 since the Sony Open in January.
“I’m playing pretty terrible,” Kisner said.
“The last couple months have been pretty poor. I’m not scoring well and not giving myself enough chances to score well.
“I didn’t drive it good all week this week [Wells Fargo Championship] and it just played so long I didn’t drive it good enough to score.
“So I’ve got a lot to work on. I’ll go do that this weekend and get ready for [The Players Championship] next week.”
