Trevor Immelman Undergoes Surgery

The 2006 PGA Rookie of the Year, Trevor Immelman, underwent surgery in his native country, South Africa, in order to correct a nagging rib problem.

In 2006, Immelman set a record for rookie earnings with $3.8 million.

In April, 2007, Immelman contracted a stomach ailment and lost 30 pounds.

Immelman was scheduled to have a bone spur removed from the rib cage. It will require muscle to be moved to access the rib. The issue was so problematic that he withdrew from the South African Airways tournament. He had won the event twice before. According to published reports, he was having extreme pain when swinging and pain when breathing.

He plans to strengthen in time to play in the Buick Invitational in San Diego in late January.

Immelman celebrated his 28th birthday on December 16.
