Henrik Stenson took to Instagram on Thursday and announced that he underwent a minor procedure on his elbow.

The surgery will force him to miss the upcoming World Golf Championship event in China - a tournament where he's finished as the runner-up in back-to-back years.

Stenson was forced to withdraw from the Scottish Open and The Northern Trust this year due to lingering elbow issues.

Despite not being 100 percent, Stenson went 3-0 at the Ryder Cup in late September.
