Kirk missed the cut in his last four events and after the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. On April 29th Kirk made a decision that he was going to quit drinking. This was a problem that had been around for years, he had tried twice before to quit but after six to eight weeks he was back drinking. But this time was different. He had found a support group and also decided to take a leave of absence from the PGA Tour. He spent the summer at his home in Athens, Georgia with his family. For three and a half months he didn't touch a golf club. So his 2019 was finished.
2020 Notes: He started ramping up his game in September looking to return for the Mayakoba Golf Classic. On his return, he played good finishing T-33rd. But everything wasn't that good, his game wasn't as sharp as he would have liked it and he missed the next five cuts. He took it slowly, going from event to event in a mobile home with his family. He only played in 11 events and in the five cuts he made his best finish was T-21st at the Rocket Morgage. After the Charles Schwab Challenge, he couldn't get into the Heritage and played in the Korn Ferry Tour The King & Beach Classic. He won it by a shot over Justin Lower, making birdie on his final hole.
2021 Notes: Things got back to normal and his game came around. He was T-2nd at the Sony Open in Hawaii, a shot back of winner Kevin Na. Not only was it his best finish on the PGA Tour since his T-2nd at the 2016 Sanderson Farms, but he earned enough FedExCup points to remain in the major medical extension for the rest of the season. He was T-8th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, T-6th at the Valero Texas Open, and T-7th at the RBC Heritage.
