Defending champion Begay withdraws from GHO

Notah Begay III, the defending champion of the Canon Greater Hartford Open, withdrew from the tournament Tuesday, citing continued problems with his back.

Begay hurt his back during the offseason in December. He has played in just nine events since, finishing no better than 32nd at the season-opening Mercedes Championships.

``I have been dealing with this back situation for the last six months and am trying to take every precaution necessary to avoid it becoming a long-term injury,'' Begay said.

Begay was replaced in the field by Joey Sindelar.

The tournament runs from Thursday through Sunday at the TPC at River Highlands.
