Joe Ozaki Quits US PGA Tour

Naomichi 'Joe' Ozaki has decided to quit after eight years on the U.S. PGA Tour.
Ozaki, 45, said he will withdraw from all remaining tournaments in the United States this year, leaving Greater Milwaukee Open champion Shigeki Maruyama as the only Japanese player with an official exemption on the American Tour.
Ozaki, who has won 29 titles on the Japanese Tour, plans to concentrate on tournaments in his homeland next season but still hopes to travel overseas for the four majors and the World Golf Championships events.
