One and done: Champ joins Tiger Woods on the injury list and is OUT for the year

Cameron Champ is a superstar in the making and a player we very much looked forward to seeing on the PGA Tour this season. 

But we won't be seeing him for the rest of the year after he announced on his Instagram on Thursday that he'll be out for the rest of 2021. 

UPDATE: TIGER WOODS SPOTTED ON THE RANGE OFF CRUTCHES WITH CHARLIE WOODS!

This is because of an injury he has sustained on his left wrist after playing in just one tournament, although it is not clear how the damage was caused. 

Champ is a three-time winner on the PGA Tour and most recently won the 3M Open in July, but he missed the cut at the Fortinet Championship with rounds of 73 and 71. 

He posted on Instagram: "In order to properly heal an injury to my left wrist, I've made the decision to suspend the remainder of my playing schedule for 2021. 

"While it is not the short-term outcome I was hoping for, I am fortunate to have the guidance of an amazing medical team to assess the situation fully and consider my long-term interests above all else. 

"They have put me on a path to returning 100 per cent, and I am committed to the patience and work that will be required to get there. 

"I appreciate everyone's support can't wait to be back soon!" 

Champ is one of the biggest hitters on Tour and averaged 339.5 yards off the tee last season.
