The next Sony Open in Hawaii, which kicks off Thursday, will be without a big name and one of golf’s biggest hitters.
On Monday, the PGA Tour confirmed that Bryson DeChambeau will be skipping the tournament due to wrist pain. DeChambeau agent Brett Falkoff explained that the 28-year-old suffered from pain in his left wrist and was unable to play for two consecutive weeks.
According to Golf Channel’s Ryan Lavner, DeChambeau will likely not be competing again until the Saudi International, which is scheduled to take place February 3-6. He finished tied for 10th at Sony in 2019.
As Joel Beall noted for Golf Digest, DeChambeau was able to play in all four rounds of the Sentry Cupless Tournament of Champions in Maui which ended on Sunday. He finished tied for 25th out of 38 players.
Prior to last week, DeChambeau’s last official appearance for an event was at the Hero World Challenge in early December. According to Sky Sports, he finished 14th out of 20 players for this tournament.
Currently, DeChambeau occupies eighth place in the official world ranking.
