Jamie Lovemark’s season looks like it’s about to go from bad to worse.
The former Nationwide Tour Player of the Year has what is believed to be a torn disk in his back, according to Golfweek. As a result, he’s not in the field for this week’s PLAYERS Championship and could be out an extended period -- “likely a few months,” IMG Golf’s Vice President Kevin Lynch told the publication.
Lovemark last played at the Shell Houston Open, where he withdrew following an opening-round 80. In nine starts this season, Lovemark has made just two cuts. His best finish was a tie for 28th in Puerto Rico.
