Bryson DeChambeau has to undergo surgery on his left hand after sustaining an injury to compete in the Masters last week.

The former US Open champion says he ignored medical advice and took a ‘huge risk’ to return from an injury layoff early this year, and will now pay the price with the operation casting doubt on his participation in next month’s PGA Championship.

DeChambeau’s agent, Brett Falkoff, confirmed Sports Illustrated that the 28-year-old would undergo surgery.

“Bryson will undergo surgery on his hamate bone in his left hand,” he said. “We look forward to a smooth recovery and rehabilitation process. Bryson looks forward to returning as soon as he is cleared to do so.”

DeChambeau missed the cut in Augusta after finishing 12 over par after the first two days.

He was sidelined for six weeks with hand and hip issues before playing the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play last month in Austin, where he won just half a point in three group stage matches.

The former US Open champion also missed the Valero Texas Open cut and said he was running at 80% power heading into the Masters.

DeChambeau said he first suffered a partial hip labrum tear two years ago and injured his hand late last year before escalating the problem in a fall while playing table tennis in Saudi Arabia in February.
