Davis Love III withdrew from the 2016 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational after a first-round 78 on Thursday at Firestone Country Club. The U.S. Ryder Cup captain said after the round that he's going to need season-ending surgery to repair a torn hip labrum, according to Golfweek.

“I’ve got to get it fixed,” Love said. “I don’t want to be limping around at the Ryder Cup.”

As Golfweek reports, Love grew concerned that he was going to do further damage to himself if he continued to play. He didn't want to play in last week's Quicken Loans National. Now the pain is just too much.

Love will be just fine for leading the American charge at Hazeltine in October. In fact, he said going on the disable list will give him more time to prepare for the Ryder Cup.

“It will give me a lot of time to watch golf and do pairings," Love said. "I’ll have a lot of scenarios for pairings.”
