Professional golfer Jeff Klauk's experience with epilepsy has been a winding journey, dating back to 2006 when he first began experiencing seizures.

He had his first partial-onset seizure in 2010, but did not get an official epilepsy diagnosis until 2011. Klauk then began working with an epileptologist to get additional control of the condition, and was started on a new treatment regimen to manage his partial-onset seizures. While Klauk's partial-onset seizures are typically 30-second periods where he spaces out and chuckles, partial-onset seizures vary from person to person and can also present as twitching or a sudden emotional swing.
