The three-time major winner suffered an elbow injury whilst coaching an amateur
Padraig Harrington will play no part in this weekend's FedEx St. Jude Classic after suffering an elbow injury whilst on the course.
The three-time Major winner will miss out after he was struck on the elbow by the practice swing of an amateur he was coaching.
"Thankfully nothing was broken, just 6 stitches," he tweeted. "I thought it was the end of me playing competitive golf.
"I'll only be out for 12 days or so to let stitches heal."
He added: "There's no truth in the rumour that it was the amateur's best strike of the day."
Harrington continues his return from a neck injury and competed in last weekend's PGA Memorial Tournament. He finished tied for 31st and on a score of -1.
