Bryson DeChambeau underwent successful surgery on his left wrist Thursday, he announced on Instagram.

DeChambeau said he's "looking forward to competing at the highest level within the next two months."

The eight-time PGA TOUR winner fractured his hamate bone in early February after slipping during a game of pingpong, according to Sports Illustrated's Bob Harig.

DeChambeau said he tried to play through the injury, but he opted for surgery after the ailment "caused me to alter my grip and swing, resulting in my inability to compete at golf's highest level." He added that he's struggled both mentally and physically due to the injury.

During the Masters last week, DeChambeau missed the cut after shooting a 12-over through 36 holes. He also missed the cut at the Valero Texas Open the week prior. In the WGC-Match Play in late March - DeChambeau's first TOUR event since January - he went 0-2-1, failing to advance from the group stage.
