Jordan Spieth WDs from AT&T Byron Nelson

Jordan Spieth withdrew from the AT&T Byron Nelson on Monday, citing a left wrist injury that “requires rest and limited movement.”

The three-time major champion posted a statement on Twitter:

“Over the weekend, I had severe pain in my left wrist and had doctors confirm an injury that requires rest and limited movement.

The AT&T Byron Nelson means the absolute world to me and I’m disappointed to miss it this week. Playing in front of family & friends in Dallas is one of the highlights of my year, and the tournament staff and volunteers are second to none. I look forward to being back next year and many years after.

“I’m focused on healing as quickly as possible and will have to evaluate my recovery week to week. Sincere thanks to the medical professionals who have supported me over the weekend.”

Spieth’s PGA Tour debut was at the AT&T Byron Nelson in 2010 when he was 16 and the tournament was at its longtime home at the TPC Four Seasons Resort in Las Colinas.

Spieth’s best finish at the Nelson was a runner-up last year at its new home, TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney.

Spieth missed the cut at last week’s Wells Fargo Championship at the famed Quail Hollow Club that included a second round 77 on Friday.

There is no word yet on Spieth’s availability for the upcoming PGA Championship or Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth.
