An orthopedic specialist said Saturday Greg Norman did not sustain any major damage to his left wrist Friday when he was forced to withdraw from the U.S. Open.

Norman left The Country Club Friday concerned that he had suffered a torn ligament in his left wrist when his club struck a rock during a shot.

The Australian star flew to Birmingham, Ala., Friday for tests at the Alabama Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Center.

After an examination, Dr. James R. Andrews said Norman had merely suffered a sprained wrist. He advised Norman to rest the wrist for from 10 days to two weeks.

Norman said he has suffered tendinitis in the left wrist for more than a year.
