Citing a wrist injury, Brooks Koepka withdrew from the TOUR Championship in the middle of Saturday’s third round.

Koepka was 3-over par through 12 holes at East Lake when he walked off the course with a sore wrist. He was 1-under par for the tournament.

Video from NBC Sports showed the four-time major winner shaking his left arm and bending over in pain, after his tee shot on the par-3 11th hole.

Koepka, who has already qualified for the U.S. Ryder Cup team, suggested he was withdrawing as a precaution, ahead of next week’s matches at Whistling Straits.

“Same wrist I had issues with back in ’17, ’18, so just making sure it’s all good,” said Koepka.

The 30-year old will receive $395,000 in prize money for finishing in the 30th spot.
