Sutton Threatened by Back Injury

RSS

Hal Sutton is on the verge of retiring from competition at the Match Play Championship after injuring his back. The mishap occurred a week ago when he was getting out of his car.
 
Sutton played just five holes of practice at the Melbourne, Australia, course after arriving from a 33-hour journey from home. If he is unable to compete, he will be replaced by Peter O'Malley, who would assume his position as No. 2 man in the 64-player draw.
 
'I don't think I would be doing the tournament any good if I couldn't compete,' said Sutton.
