Bryson De Chambeau Injury

Bryson DeChambeau has revealed more details about his recent injury troubles.

The 28-year-old is preparing to make his comeback at this week’s WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play having not played for a number of weeks.

DeChambeau last played in the Saudi International, but withdrew after one round citing problems with his hand and hip.

According to the player, those turned out to be a fractured hamate bone in his hand and a torn labrum in his hip.

• Jon Rahm annoyed by question about his game

He also complained of issues at the Farmers Insurance Open, where he missed the cut, and withdrew from the Sony Open earlier this year.

Speaking to Golf Channel, DeChambeau revealed he aggravated his hand injury playing table tennis in Saudi Arabia.

"People are going to say it’s off of speed training and all that and, sure, some of the things have been a part of that, just abuse and working really, really hard,” he added.

“But at the same time, I wouldn’t have traded it for anything. I’ve learned so much about my body as time has gone on and learned how to manage things and how important rest is.”

Despite his recent ailments, DeChambeau appears to once again be targeting the Masters, which takes place in two weeks.

He posted a video on social media of himself hitting drives, captioned “time to push for the Masters”.

He has also stated his intention to play the Valero Texas Open next week in order to be ready for Augusta.
