DeChambeau undergoes surgery

Bryson DeChambeau looks set to miss next month's PGA Championship after coming through successful wrist surgery. The American has struggled with two injuries in recent years; the first was a minor tear in his left hip when speed training on concrete, an injury which he kept to himself.

Then he slipped while playing table tennis on a marble floor at the Saudi Invitational in early February.

"I was playing ping-pong against Sergio (Garcia) and Joaquin Niemann. And we were on some marble floors, and they just wiped it. And me not paying attention, I Charlie Brown'd myself and went horizontal and then hit my left hip and my hand at the same time, and that really just took me out."

That put him out of action for six weeks before returning to miss the weekend action in Texas and Augusta. At The Masters he shot rounds of 76-80 to finish on +12.

And which has now seen him undergo surgery which will likely see him miss the PGA in May but he will hopefully be back in time for the US Open at Brookline. The good news is that he should be recovered well in time for The Open at St Andrews.

"I made attempts to play through this injury at three recent events, including the Masters, but this is typically an injury that requires surgical treatment," he said in an Instagram post. "Through continued discomfort from the fracture, it has caused me to alter my grip and swing, resulting in my inability to compete at golf's highest level. This has not been easy physically and mentally for me."

DeChambeau is now as low as 19th in the world rankings.
