Bryson DeChambeau will have surgery on his left hand after competing in The Masters despite an injury last week.

The former US Open winner admitted that he disobeyed medical advice and took a “big risk” by returning early from an injury layoff this year, and that he is now paying the price, with his participation in next month’s PGA Championship in jeopardy.

DeChambeau’s agent, Brett Falkoff, confirmed to 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 rehab process. Bryson looks forward to returning as soon as he is cleared to do so.”

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

He was out for six weeks due to hand and hip issues before competing in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play last month in Austin, where he only won half a point in three group matches.

The former US Open winner also missed the cut in the Valero Texas Open, and felt he was only able to play at 80% of his potential going into the Masters.

DeChambeau said he originally tore his hip labrum two years ago and damaged his hand late last year before worsening the injury in a tumble while playing table tennis in Saudi Arabia in February.
