from Players Championship
David Duval withdrew from The
Players Championship on Thursday due to a wrist injury.
Duval, who won The Players
Championship two years ago to assume the top ranking in golf, injured
the wrist two weeks ago when he was working on his swing.
This is the second week
in a row that Duval pulled out of the PGA Tour's stop. Last week,
he withdrew from the Bay Hill Invitational and after playing a few
holes of a practice round on Wednesday, left the course.
"It's not good," said Duval,
who also withdrew from the Nissan Open in late February, citing
Duval has had a miserable start to the 2001 season. Allsport.
He stated that an MRI is
likely to make sure there is no ligament damage in the wrist. Earlier
in the week, Duval said he would not take a cortisone shot "as a
last resort" in order to compete in the Masters in two weeks.
Duval missed 10 weeks in
the 2000 campaign after he injured his back. He won the Buick Challenge
upon his return and successfully teamed with Tiger Woods to capture
the World Cup in Argentina.
