Huston Battles Back Pain

John Huston, preparing for this week's Tampa Bay Classic, is battling back pain that forced him to withdraw from last week's Invensys Classic in Las Vegas.
The back injury first appeared 10 days ago, the St. Petersburg Times reported. That was during the final round of the Michelob Championship in Williamsburg, Va. It was a cool day and Huston, immediately after playing, boarded a plane for Las Vegas.
Huston is particularly concerned about playing this week in Palm Harbor, Fla., and next week in Orlando at the National Car Rental Classic at Disney because he lives at Palm Harbor. He got off to a good start this year but has played little the last two months.
