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 Whis, who Thomas was staying with during the Memorial, was also in the car. Thomas said Whis 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.

Hanako Kawasaki will be aiming to continue her recent mastery of Nguyen Thao My when the duo lock horns once more in the 11th edition of the Faldo Series Vietnam Championship.
The 3rd Vietnam Junior Open 2018 ended with the new champion from Australia, Caleb Jye Perry to finish at +6, 2 shots ahead of defending champion Hanako Kawasaki, who got the silver medal.
England’s David Howell is the chairman of the European Tour’s tournament committee, having replaced Thomas Bjorn earlier this year as he focused on his European Ryder Cup captain’s duties. But that doesn’t mean he’s "above the law," if you will. Playing in the second round of the HNA Open de France, Howell mistakenly showed up late to his tee time at Le Golf National outside Paris.
