Tour pro forced to WD from Australian PGA after slicing hand trying to move a stake


After COVID forced the cancelation of the Australian PGA Championship in 2020 and the postponment of the 2021 edition into the new year, the tournament finally began on Thursday. For one player, though, the long-awaited week ended rather quickly. And in truly bizarre fashion.

Damien Jordan withdrew during the first round after cutting his hand. And if that’s not weird enough, apparently, the injury was sustained when he tried to move a stake at Royal Queensland Golf Club. Yep, a stake.

Golf Australia’s Jimmy Emanuel was first to report this unusual—and unfortunate—incident.

Details are still unclear, but the Australian Associated Press also reported Jordan’s WD due to “slicing his hand trying to move a stake on the course.”

Jordan is currently No. 1,715 in the Official World Golf Ranking. He achieved a career-best of No. 530 in 2017, the same year he won the Victorian PGA Championship.
