Golf-DeChambeau withdraws from Colonial due to wrist injury

Bryson DeChambeau has decided to pull out of this week’s PGA Tour event at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, as he continues his recovery from surgery to repair a bone in his left wrist, the American circuit. The hard-hitting American, whose prodigious length off the tee has raised concerns about whether he is pushing his body too hard, has not competed since missing the cut at the Masters in early April after overtaking 12 in the first two rounds.

DeChambeau was at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last week, where he played practice rounds ahead of the PGA Championship, but on the eve of the second major tournament of the year, he decided not to participate. . DeChambeau, who won his only major at the 2020 US Open, was limited to six world starts this year due to wrist and hip injuries and underwent surgery on his left hand shortly after the Masters.

World number 25 DeChambeau will be replaced on the pitch at this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge by John Huh. According to a report on the Golf Channel website, DeChambeau is targeting a return to next week’s Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio.
