28-year-old long hitting PGA Tour superstar Bryson DeChambeau, announced he had undergone surgery to his left wrist and will be out of action for  two months.

DeChambeau said the surgery was required to repair a fractured hook of the hamate bone in his left wrist.

“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’s availability for the next major, the PGA Championship at Southern Hills Golf Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on May 19-22, now seems in doubt. The U.S. Open, meanwhile, is June 16-19 at The Country Club outside Boston.

“For now, I will be taking the appropriate time needed to rest and recover from this procedure and look forward to competing at the highest level within the next two months,” DeChambeau said. “Thank you to my family, team, partners and supporters during this tough stretch, but I am excited to work hard to get back competing soon.”

It is not clear whether the injury was caused due to stress of  De Chambeau’s rigorous weight training and long driving. His progress will be followed closely by other youngsters who are looking at following the same path of bulking up and training to drive the ball close to 400 yards.
