wrist injury sidelines Harrington

3rd January 2019, 15:10 by Tom Hill

Padraig Harrington has revealed he will be out of action until February after breaking a bone in his wrist.

The three-time major winner had been hoping to play at the end of this month in the events in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

However, he has now been forced to delay his plans and he has pencilled in the PGA Tour's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am from February 7-10 for a seasonal reappearance after damaging his wrist.

Confirming the news of his wrist injury, Harrington wrote on his official website: "Over the Christmas period I discovered that I had broken a bone in my wrist.

"I had slipped whilst walking down the stairs at home in mid-December. Whilst it continues to heal, I need to keep it in a splint a little while longer so, frustratingly, I will need to miss the first two planned events of my season in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

"However, I should be fully fit for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-am on the PGA Tour in early February."
