Erik Compton withdrew after nine holes on Thursday at the Valero Texas Open, joining Anthony Kim who injured his wrist early in the opening round and withdrew after 14 holes.

Compton, a two-time heart transplant recipient, told GTC via a text message that he was “fine,” but planned to have his blood levels checked because he has been feeling a little weak.

This is Compton’s first year with a Tour card and he’s played solid, making seven of nine cuts.
