Shoulder surgery ends Woodland's rookie season

Gary Woodland’s rookie season on the PGA Tour is over. The 25-year-old withdrew from the Canadian Open and will have season-ending surgery on his left shoulder, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal.

Woodland has tried to play through inflammation in his rotator cuff since early March.

Woodland has made 10 of 18 cuts this year, with a best finish of T-28 at Mayakoba. Woodland also tied for 47th at the U.S. Open. He’s earned $121,031 and ranks 195th on the money list.

“The question isn’t whether I can play well enough, because I know I’m capable of playing well,” Woodland told the Topeka Capital-Journal. “The question is, even if I make the next nine cuts, do I have the strength to go four days in a row? It’s been evident over the last four months that I get tired over the weekend. I just don’t have the strength and the shoulder to play four days in a row.”
