Verplank withdraws from PGA Championship
Scott Verplank has withdrawn from the PGA Championship on Friday
with a hip injury.
Verplank was 9 over par for the tournament when he withdrew
after nine holes Friday. He shot 75 in the first round
The 48-year-old Verplank finished tied for fourth at last year’s
PGA Championship but hasn’t been much of a factor this season.
Verplank withdrew from The Players Championship in May because
of an injured left wrist, and he had played only one PGA Tour event
since then, missing the cut at the St. Jude Classic in June.
He played the back nine Friday and made two bogeys and two
double bogeys, then stopped before playing the front.
