Former US Open champion Gary Woodland has undergone surgery to remove a brain tumor.
The 39-year-old American, winner of the 2019 US Open at Pebble Beach, revealed the diagnosis last month.
He said he decided to have the operation after consulting specialists and talking with his family.
“After a lengthy operation, the majority of the tumor was removed,” read a statement posted on Woodland’s social media.
He added: “At this time the family is requesting space and privacy to be together. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers as he embarks on the road to recovery.”
The four-time PGA Tour winner has competed in 24 events this year, finishing in the top 10 twice.
