Bud Cauley ‘thankful to be alive’ after ‘scariest night of my life’

PGA Tour pro Bud Cauley said he is “thankful to be alive” after the “scariest night of my life” following the serious car crash he was involved in on Friday in Dublin, Ohio.

Cauley, 28, missed the cut at the Memorial and was one of four injured in a single-vehicle accident before 11 p.m. ET Friday. According to Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis, Cauley was a passenger and suffered five broken ribs, a collapsed lung and fractured lower left leg.

Although the Dublin Police Department has not released the names of the driver or other passengers because it’s still an open investigation, Justin Thomas told the media that James Wisniewski, who Thomas was staying with during the Memorial, was also in the car. Thomas said Wisniewski, a pro hockey player, sustained broken ribs. According to police, the driver of the vehicle was taken into custody with charges pending.

On Monday morning Cauley posted to his Instagram, thanking everyone for their support and saying he has no timetable for his return to the Tour.

“In the meantime I’ll use this time to reflect an get stronger,” he wrote.
