04 PGA ChampionshipKOHLER, Wis. -- U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen and former major winner Nick Price have withdrawn from next week's PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.
 
Goosen, who captured his second U.S. Open title in June at Shinnecock, will miss the championship as he continues to recover from a jet-ski injury. Goosen, who was also forced to pull out of The International, will be replaced in the field by Brian Bateman.
 
Nick Price, who won the PGA Championship in 1992 and 1994, has withdrawn citing family obligations. This is the second straight year that Price will skip the PGA Championship because of family reasons. Price also missed the event in 1991, when John Daly earned his breakthrough major.
 
Brett Quigley will take Price's spot in the field for the 86th PGA Championship which tees off Thursday at Whistling Straits Golf Club in Kohler, Wis. Shaun Micheel is the defending champion.
