The native of Weyburn, Sask., will undergo minor back surgery Monday to repair a herniated disc. He’ll need eight weeks to recover.
DeLaet suffered from a bulging disc for most of this season but it became herniated late in the year.

DeLaet was the top Canadian on the PGA Tour this season, finishing 100th on the money list with over $950,000 US in earnings.
He became the first Canadian rookie in over a decade to retain his card.
