PGA Tour star Brandt Snedeker is recovering in hospital this morning after undergoing pioneering duct tape surgery.

Snedeker announced he was taking a break from Tournament golf earlier this week after his sternum became detached from his chest and slid down his trousers.

Brandt Snedeker sits in theatre after undergoing the eight hour duct taping procedure.

The 36 year old was diagnosed two years ago by medical experts as suffering form a rare disorder called Osteobuckaroo which sees bones just fly off when you least expect.

The never before performed surgery, which took place over eight hours yesterday, saw surgeons with hairdryers slowly rotate Snedeker into a giant spool of duct tape in an attempt to apply an even all over coating to hold him together.

"Even though this a new surgery, we are all very confident of a full recovery," head physician at the Williamson Medical Centre Professor Cal Cium told reporters. "This duct tape is brilliant stuff. And Brandt will have the added benefit from now on of being totally waterproof too which is pretty cool."
