Former champion Justin Thomas has withdrawn from this week's US PGA Championship due to a wrist injury.

Thomas, who won the title at Quail Hollow in 2017, finished 12th in the Masters on his last start but will miss the second major championship of the year at Bethpage State Park on Long Island.

The world number five wrote on Twitter: "Unfortunately I will be withdrawing from the 101st PGA Championship at Bethpage Black this week as my wrist is not yet fully healed.

"Obviously, as a past champion, this tournament is extra special to me. It consistently has the strongest field in golf, and I'm disappointed not to be among those competing this year but I'm optimistic about a return in the future."

Thomas is replaced in the field by fellow American Kelly Kraft.
