Aaron Wise (USA), who was crowned rookie of the 2018 US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, gave up participating in the ‘Dream Stage’ Masters, which came after 4 years.
Wise announced on social media on the 2nd (Korean time), “Unfortunately, I have decided not to participate in the Masters.” 메이저사이트
Weiss, who first competed in the Masters in 2019 and had not been able to qualify for the past three years, took the opportunity to participate in this year’s tournament by qualifying for the top 50 in the world rankings at the end of last year.
He revealed that the reason he gave up such a valuable opportunity to participate in the Masters was mental illness.
Wise said, “Golf is a game where both mental and physical health are important, and I’m having a tough day mentally.”
He did not elaborate on what kind of mental illness it was.
In 2018, he won the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and became the rookie of the year with outstanding performances, and the following year he participated in all four major tournaments, including the Masters.
Wise, who ranked 13th in the FedEx Cup rankings even though he did not win last season, is suffering from sluggishness this year.
Wise has played in seven tournaments since last January and missed the cut four times.
Since there is no standby player system in the Masters, Wise’s withdrawal reduced the number of players by one.
