Bryson DeChambeau is making strides in his recovery following wrist surgery.
DeChambeau provided visual proof on social media Friday night that he is out of his cast. He also wrote that he's starting to grip a golf club just over two weeks removed from his surgery on April 14 to repair a fractured hamate bone in his left wrist.
“Healing up! Gripped a club today. Can't hold on to it for long, but getting there!” said DeChambeau, who previously said he plans to return to competition within two months.
That timeline all but assures that DeChambeau will miss the PGA Championship, the second major of the season scheduled for May 19-22 at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla.
DeChambeau, 28, could be back for the U.S. Open, the championship where he won his lone major title in 2020. This year's edition is set for June 16-19 at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass.
He missed roughly two months of the PGA Tour season earlier this year while fighting through a torn labrum in his hip and his wrist injury.
DeChambeau briefly returned to play in late March and lost all three group-stage matches at the WGC-Match Play. He missed the cut at the Valero Texas Open and the Masters, where he told reporters he was playing against doctors' orders.
His second-round 80 at Augusta National Golf Club was the worst round of his professional career. He has not made a cut since the first week of January.
