LODDEKOPINGE, Sweden (AP) — Jesper Parnevik might have played his last round of the season.
The 44-year-old Swede, who tied for 17th at the SAS Masters on Sunday, told golf magazine Svensk Golf that he will undergo hip surgery next week in a clinic at Vail, Colo.
The Florida-based Parnevik, a former SAS Masters champion, is one of Sweden’s best golfers. He finished second in the 1994 British Open at Turnberry, narrowly missing out on becoming Sweden’s first men’s major winner.
He’s struggled on the PGA Tour recently. The five-time winner in the United States hasn’t finished better than a tie for 42nd at the Buick Invitational.
