For some golfers, the biggest prizes aren't their tournament wins but their wives and girlfriends.

Molinari said after finishing with a share of 11th place in the Andalucian Open on Sunday that he has had the injury for four years.

The Italian Ryder Cup player said he originally had tendinitis in the wrist and learned from doctors after returning home from the European Tour's recent Middle East swing that he has cartilage that needs to be removed.

Molinari had two cortisone shots and played with his wrist taped in Spain.

He hopes to keep playing and have the operation around September.
