ustin Thomas withdrew from the 2019 PGA Championship on Monday due to a wrist injury that also kept him out of the Wells Fargo Championship earlier this month. Thomas, the 2017 PGA Championship winner, finished T12 at The Masters which is the last tournament he played this season. He had four top 10s in five events to start 2019.

"Unfortunately, I will be withdrawing from the 101st PGA Championship at Bethpage Black this week as my wrist is not yet fully healed," Thomas said in a statement released on Twitter. "Obviously, as a past champion, this tournament is extra special to me. It consistently has the strongest field in golf and I'm disappointed to not be among those competing this year, but I'm optimistic about a return in the near future."

Thomas was one of the handful of favorites at Bethpage Black this week, as he should have been. Only five golfers have beaten him in the last two PGAs, and he finished T10 at the 2016 Barclays at Bethpage. In fact, he probably should have been even higher up the list of oddsmakers' favorites.
