The Epilepsy Foundation of Mississippi is extremely excited to have Jeff Klauk, a graduate of Florida Southern College professional golfer and PGA. In 2006, Jeff experienced his first tonic-clonic seizure. It happened on a Friday night after he had finally played well the first two days of a tournament. From there Jeff was forced to withdraw from the event and took the necessary time to figure out what treatment options was best for him. After getting his seizures under control and returning to golf in 2008, Jeff finished third on the Web.com money list and earned his PGA Tour card, a dream he had since he was a child. Jeff had one win and three 2nd place finishes in 2008 that helped him qualify for the PGA Tour. Then on Christmas Eve, Jeff experienced his first complex partial seizure.
Jeff started 2011 on the PGA Tour but realized that he needed to come home, figure out what was causing these seizures, and get some help.
In April of 2012, Jeff underwent Intracranial-monitoring surgery at Emory Hospital to locate the place in his brain where his seizures started. The monitoring revealed that Jeff’s seizures were originating in the left frontal lobe, which is the part of the brain that controls motor skills. He decided not to proceed with a second surgery that would remove the spot in his brain where his seizures originated because of its location. He eventually found a medication to control his seizures, which he says changed his life and has controlled his seizures.
Please join us and meet Jeff and hear his amazing story.
