Ryan Moore out after wrist surgery

PGA Tour rookie Ryan Moore underwent surgery to repair a fractured hamate bone in his left hand in Orlando on Monday and is expected to be out of action for six to eight weeks.

Among the events he will miss are this week's Players Championship and the Masters in early April.

Moore, the 2004 U.S. Amateur champion, earned his 2006 PGA Tour card via sponsors' exemptions in just 10 events last season but began feeling discomfort last summer and took several weeks off to rest his hand. The pain persisted, however, and he took another four-week layoff earlier this year.

When the pain flared up again after Moore played at the Honda Classic, Mark O'Meara sent him to Dr. Jerry Rubin, a hand specialist, who diagnosed the issue with the hamate bone.

Hamate bones, small bones in the wrist area, often are problematic for baseball players, who tend to swing their bats similarly to the way golfers swing their clubs.
