Prior to the start of his round-one tee time, Louis Oosthuizen has withdrawn from this week's PGA Championship. There was no injury cited but he has struggled with back injuries throughout his career. First alternate Kelly Kraft has taken his spot in the field. UPDATE: PGA TOUR Communications confirmed that it was a back injury that caused this 11th-hour WD.
Oosthuizen has a long history of pre-tournament (and mid-tournament) WDs. Most have been due to back troubles. There wasn't any major concerns over the last year but in hindsight, Jonathan Wall of PGATOUR.com may have dropped a hint that his back was bothering him when he tweeted, "Louis Oosthuizen is going back to a 46-inch shaft (PX T1100 HZRDUS Smoke) in his PING G400 LST driver. Was at 45 inches. Length and shaft provided better feel and stability. Also going to 38-inch putter due to back bothering him at 35." As for Oosthuizen himself, he entered the week ranked 70th in the FedExCup standings so we should see him in a few weeks when the FEC Playoffs begin. Aug 9 - 3:33 PM
