NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Brandt Snedeker injured his left leg when he lost his balance and landed awkwardly when he hopped off a Segway in China.

Snedeker was at a corporate outing at Sheshan International on Monday when he injured himself. He immediately withdrew from the Australian PGA Championship and returned home to Nashville. Doctors said he bruised his left tibia and strained the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Snedeker said surgery will not be required. He said his injuries could heal in a couple of weeks, or it might take as much as two months. He is scheduled to play the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge in California on December 5-8, and the Franklin Templeton Shootout a week later in Florida.

Snedeker missed six weeks earlier this year when he cracked a rib.
