Parys - A cycling accident has put South African professional golfer George Coetzee in a chase to get fit for the big-money events that will close off the 2013 season.

"I had to stop quickly on the bicycle and it didn't work out so well.

"I'm trying to be ready for the Alfred Dunhill Links, but it's going to be close," said Coetzee.

"It is involved in all types of movement in the wrist, so we need it to heal properly.

"But George is blessed with a lot of strength in his arms, which will help him.

"'And he knows his body really well, so he'll know what he needs to do and when he's ready to go."
