Cauley Hospitalized With Serious Injuries

PGA Tour player Bud Cauley has spent the last two nights in a Columbus-area hospital with “serious injuries” after being involved in a car crash on Friday night in Dublin, Ohio, according to his agent RJ Nemer of IMG Golf.


Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis reported that Cauley was involved in a crash around 11 p.m. on Friday night. Cauley suffered five broken right ribs, a collapsed right lung and a fractured lower left leg. He was a passenger in a car with three others.


Cauley missed the cut at the Memorial Tournament with rounds of 77 and 76. He was scheduled to be playing on Monday in a U.S. Open sectional qualifier in Memphis, but he has withdrawn.

Cauley is roomamates with Justin Thomas in Jupiter, Florida. Late Saturday night, Thomas shared how close he is with Cauley on social media. “Not many people I love more in this world than my guy BC,” Thomas wrote. “Was a rough nights sleep last night. Glad to see and hear he’s been doing better. Prayers are needed and all we can do is hope for the best! Get well soon, homi ??”

Cauley has battled injuries before, missing the 2015 season after shoulder surgery in 2014. The Alabama product hasn’t found the winner’s circle yet, but he has notched three third-place finishes and 19 total top-10s in his career, earning him nearly $7 million in on-the-course earnings.
