Paul Dunne admits he’s unsure as to when we will next see him on the fairways after the Greystones star underwent surgery on his right wrist this week.

In November, the 27-year old cited an injury suffered at home as reason to skip Final Stage Qualifying School at Lumine Golf Club.

Dunne was expected to tee up at the six round slog in order to attempt to regain his full European Tour status having suffered a severe dip in form in 2019.

The 2017 British Masters Champion missed a total of 15 cuts on the European Tour this calendar year, falling short of regaining his Tour card on the Race to Dubai.

However, with Conditional Status secured for next season and a niggling injury hopefully behind him after going under the knife, Dunne is looking forward to returning to work, albeit unsure as to when that might be.

“Had successful surgery on my hand last Monday after a recent injury and am healing up well,” Dunne tweeted.

“Right now the plan is to rest and wait for the rehab process to start up when the cast is removed. Looking forward to coming back ready to play – whenever that is.”
