Daniel Chopra is being driven by the pain of golf to try and get back on the PGA Tour.

The two-time winner on the PGA Tour in 2007 and 2008 has seen an incredible dive in the world rankings to 986th.

Chopra says he's had some incredibly tough times in the last few years.

He says it's like being jilted by a lover, but at the some time it's a game that's given him so much joy over the years.

Chopra says he's largely playing in Asia at the moment, but is determined to get back to the big time, starting with the New Zealand PGA Championship which begins at Remuera tomorrow.
