Brandt Snedeker withdrew from the Australian PGA Championship Monday night, citing an undisclosed injury to his left leg.

That injury has now been disclosed.

According to the Associated Press, Snedeker injured the leg when he lost his balance and jumped off a Segway in China. Snedeker returned to his hometown of Nashville where doctors diagnosed him with a strained ACL and bruised tibia.

The AP reports that Snedeker will not have surgery, though his timetable for return is wide, spanning either a few weeks or two months.
