Duval withdraws 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 fatigue.

David 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.

Duval was not replaced in the field.
