Ricky Barnes has withdrawn from the Bob Hope Classic after eight holes of the third round due to a nagging back problem. The condition prompted him to withdraw prior to the start of the Sony Open in Hawaii.
Barnes shot a 65 in his 2011 debut on Wednesday, then followed with a 70 on Thursday. He was 2 over for the day when he withdrew. Here’s what he tweeted after his early exit.
