John Cook, Joey Sindelar withdraw from Legends

The team of John Cook and Joey Sindelar withdrew Saturday from

the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf tournament because Sindelar has

a bad back.

Sindelar, who injured his back last week in a Champions Tour

event in Tampa, felt well enough to start the 54-hole best-ball

event with his old Ohio State teammate on Friday.

However, he felt pain again and left The Club at Savannah Harbor

course after four holes.

Cook played the last 14 holes alone and had the team just three

strokes off the lead with a 7-under 65. After the round, Sindelar

indicated he might be able to play again, perhaps on Sunday. But he

changed his mind early Saturday.

Cook said he would have played on as a single for Saturday’s

round, but didn’t feel it was fair to finish the tournament that
