Lee McCoy injured in car accident, withdraws from second stage of Q-School

Former Georgia standout Lee McCoy withdrew from the second stage of  Web.com Tour Q-School after fracturing his wrist in a minor car accident.

“Sadly, I fractured my wrist in 2 spots (Monday) during a small car accident and had to WD from 2nd stage. Will be healthy in 6-8 weeks,” McCoy tweeted Tuesday.

McCoy made a name for himself with a fourth-place finish at the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook earlier this year, shooting 66 on Saturday. He made the cut at the Shriners Open last week and finished T-41 at 8 under.

McCoy had just flown in to Florida from Las Vegas prior to the accident, PGATour.com reports.

“It’s the way it goes sometimes. Something I can’t be in control of,” McCoy told Adam Stanley of the PGA Tour. “I was turning right from underneath an overpass. I couldn’t see someone coming in the inside lane and I pulled out in front of them. I stomped on the gas and avoided them, but I (hit) a concrete wall. I didn’t hit the wall going very fast, but I was just trying to get out of everybody’s way and not hit anybody else. I jammed it when I hit the wall. I hit the wall face-on.”

McCoy shot 9 under to finish T-9 in the first stage of qualifying last month in West Palm Beach and was slated to begin the second stage Tuesday at Southern Hills Plantation in Brooksville, Florida.
