Retief Goosen is hoping to be back in action at the PGA Tour’s Memorial Tournament at the start of June.

The South African was forced to pull out of this week’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth – the European Tour’s flagship event.

Indeed, the 41-year-old has not played since the Masters over a month ago after falling over and breaking a toe whilst playing with his two children.

Goosen has also revealed on his personal website that he has subsequently picked up a hand injury that has further hindered his comeback.

Expressing his regret at missing this week’s Wentworth showpiece, he went on to underline his intention of returning at the Memorial.

“Unfortunately I’ve had to withdraw from this week’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth after I hurt my hand a couple of weeks ago, this was a separate incident to the toe,” he explained.

“I really enjoy the BMW as it’s one of the few tournaments I can stay at home for, I was looking forward to playing the recently renovated West Course. The course looks much tougher now with the 18th the hole to look out for.

“I’m likely to be off for another couple of weeks and hopefully will return for Memorial at the end of the May.”

The Memorial Tournament takes place from June 3-6 at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Ohio.
