No Love at Pebble Beach
Last updated: 5th February 2013
Davis Love III, twice a winner at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, has withdrawn from this week's event after suffering a neck injury during last week's Phoenix Open.
It will be the first time since 1986 that the 48-year-old veteran - a winner of 20 PGA Tour events including the 1997 PGA Championship at Winged Foot - won't be competing at the tournament.
"I haven't spoken with him but was told that it was his neck," Monterey Peninsula Foundation CEO Steve John commented ahead of the event.
Love III is one of 10 multiple winners at Pebble Beach, he will remember his triumph in 2001, when he started the final round seven strokes behind the leaders only to shoot a 28 on the front nine and a 63 in total to eclipsed Tiger Woods' 2000 record for low final round by a winner, most fondly.
During his victory in 2003, he received a favourable bounce in the final round when his tee-shot on the par three 12th was headed towards the rough when it hit a photographer and rolled four feet from the pin.
He made a birdie on the hole and won the event by one stroke ahead of Tom Lehaman.
