Brooks Koepka’s run at the Tour Championship has come to an end.

Koepka withdrew in the middle of his third round on Saturday at East Lake due to a wrist injury, officially ending his PGA Tour season.

Koepka first hurt his left wrist after he hit a tree root on No. 10 on Saturday, though he didn’t officially withdraw until the 12th hole. He was 3-over par on the day at the time, and in 25th place in the 30-man field.

“Same wrist I had issues with in ‘17 and ‘18 so I’m just making sure it’s all good,” Koepka said, .

Koepka picked up his eighth career Tour win earlier this season at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. He had eight top-10 finishes on the year — including at the British Open, the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship — and has qualified for the Ryder Cup team already.

Koepka will still finish 30th in the field at the Tour Championship, which will net him nearly $400,000.

Patrick Cantlay holds a two-shot lead headed into Sunday’s final round at East Lake after posting a 3-under 67 on Saturday. Jon Rahm is behind him at 18-under, and Justin Thomas sits in third at 15-under.
