Padraig Harrington hopes to start at Peeble Beach in early 2019

The third big winner Padraig Harrington will be out of action until next month after he has broken a bone in his wrist.

The 47-year-old Dubliner will miss European Tour events in Abu Dhabi and Dubai later this month.

Harrington is now setting a first performance of the season at the AT & T Pebble Beach Pro-Ben on 7-10 February.

He is the odds-on favorite to become the European Ryder Cup captain for the 2020 race in Whistling Straits.

"During the Christmas period I discovered that I had broken a bone in my wrist," Harrington said on his website.

"I walked down the stairs in mid-December.

" While it continues to heal, I have to keep it in a splint for a while, so frustratingly, I'll have the first two planned events of my season in Abu Dhabi and Dubai must be missed.

"However, I should be completely fit for the AT & T Pebble Beach Pro-am at the PGA Tour in early February."
