Baltimore, MD – J.B. Holmes underwent brain surgery on like symptoms.
In an email to the Golf Channel's Ryan Ballengee, Holmes' agent Terry Reilly said, "There was significant pressure on the brain that they were able to relieve. Several days of recuperation at Johns Hopkins and then Holmes will head home to fully recuperate."
The surgery, performed by Dr. George Jallo, reportedly relieved pressure to the 29-year-old's cerebellum and brain stem.
It is expected that Holmes may begin chipping and putting within 30 days, hitting full shots and playing within 60 days, then playing competitive golf within 90 days.
Holmes, who is a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, had to withdraw from the first two PGA Tour playoff events for the FedExCup. He had posted four top-10 finishes this year, but hadn't made a cut in any of his last three events, dating back to the British Open in July.
