Bryson DeChambeau is still unable to compete.
DeChambeau, who withdrew from last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a wrist injury, said on Sunday night that he will also withdraw from this week’s Players Championship.
DeChambeau told Golfweek that he’s “nearly ready,” but he hasn’t said when he’ll be back.
He told Golfweek that he was “getting ready for something major.” “There are a lot of plans in the works.”
DeChambeau hasn’t competed on the PGA Tour since missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open. He attempted to compete at the Saudi International, but withdrew after the first round due to a left hand and hip injuries, which he claimed occurred after a fall earlier in the week.

The 28-year-old has attempted to return multiple times, including last week to defend his title, but has been unsuccessful.
It’s unclear when DeChambeau will be fully recovered and able to play again.
The eight-time major champion hasn’t won since the Arnold Palmer Invitational last season, which came shortly after his victory in the postponed U.S. Open.
This week, DeChambeau will be replaced on the pitch by Hayden Buckley.
Kevin Na WDs, father of three, is expecting his third kid.
Kevin Na announced his withdrawal from The Players Championship on Monday afternoon, but his rationale is far more intriguing.
This week, Na and his wife Julianne are expecting their third child.
Na, 38, missed the Arnold Palmer Invitational cut last week. So far this season, he’s made six starts, with his best finish being a T13 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January. The five-time Tour champion hasn’t won since the Sony Open last season.
Taylor Moore will take Na’s spot at The Players Championship.
