PGA TourPORTLAND, Ore. -- Peter Jacobsen will undergo emergency hip surgery, Tuesday, April 20, to repair a torn labrum on his left hip that has developed into a bone spur.
 
Jacobsen will be unable to compete in any PGA TOUR or Champions Tour events for the next six to eight weeks while he recuperates.
 
Jacobsen, a seven-time PGA TOUR winner and a rookie on the Champions Tour, had the same arthroscopic hip surgery in May 2001.
 
'This has been a very exciting year for me thus far. I'm disappointed that I'm faced with this injury and will not be able to play,' said Jacobsen. 'But I'm optimistic that I will have a quick recovery and be back in competition soon.'
 
Jacobsen's target for return is the Bayer Advantage Celebrity Pro-Am, a Champions Tour event in Kansas City, Mo., held June 7-14. Jacobsen's sports management company, Peter Jacobsen Productions, Inc., manages the tournament.
