Illness Forces Crenshaw to Withdraw

Ben Crenshaw's debut on the Senior PGA Tour will have to wait. The two-time Masters champion withdrew Wednesday from the Royal Caribbean Classic because he has the flu.
'I'm extremely disappointed that I can't play in Miami this week,'' Crenshaw said from his home in Austin, Texas. 'I had been looking forward to starting my senior tour career there for actually the last several years.''
A 19-time winner on the PGA Tour, Crenshaw said he plans to play next week in the Ace Group Classic in Naples, Fla.
He was replaced in the Royal Caribbean field by Bobby Walzel.
