Brad Faxon out for 2 months following fall

  Brad Faxon will be sidelined six to eight weeks after falling from a ladder in the backyard of his Barrington, R.I., home.

He landed awkwardly on his left wrist.

The mishap occurred over the weekend and will leave Faxon in a cast for several weeks, according to Greg Able of Pros Inc.

The five-time PGA Tour winner is regarded as one of the best putters on tour. His last victory came at the 1997 Freeport-McDermott Classic. Faxon was a member of the last two U.S. Ryder Cup teams.

Faxon and fellow New Englander Billy Andrade have raised more than $1.65 million for children's charities in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. The duo hosts an annual pro-am at Wannamoisett Country Club in Rumford, R.I.
