Steve Elkington out of Open with groin injury

Former PGA champion Steve Elkington withdrew from the British Open on Sunday because of a pulled groin muscle.

Because he had qualified at Congressional, Elkington was replaced by Jimmy Green, the first alternate from that international qualifying site.

Elkington, 41, withdrew from the British Open last year with a shoulder injury after opening with an 86, his highest score ever in a major championship. He lost in a four-man playoff the year before at Muirfield.

Elkington has 12 victories worldwide, including the 1995 PGA Championship at Riviera.

Earlier in the week five-time British Open champion Tom Watson and Freddie Couples also withdrew.
