Bryson DeChambeau has been forced to withdraw after one round of the Saudi International after his injury problems flared up again at Royal Greens Golf Club.

The big-hitting American has been struggling over the past number of months, missing the cut at last week’s Farmers Insurance Open and also withdrawing through injury from the Sony Open in Hawaii.

“Bryson DeChambeau has withdrawn ahead of the second round of the PIF Saudi International powered by SoftBank Investment Advisers with a left hand and left hip injury,” tournament organisers said.

DeChambeau had signed for an opening round of three-over par 73 at the $5 million Asian Tour event. The world number 9 had earlier denied reports that he’s been offered $135 million to become the face of the Saudi-backed Super Golf League.

Responding to an article by Golf Monthly on Instagram detailing the apparent offer, DeChambeau replied with one word – “Wrong.”
