AKRON, Ohio – Thomas Levet, who won the Alstom Open de France earlier this year on the European Tour, has withdrawn from the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
Levet is nursing a shin injury suffered when the Frenchman jumped into the water by the 18th green after his victory. The Frenchman had to withdraw from the Barclays Scottish Open, the British Open and the Irish Open.
The starting field at Firestone is 76 now that Levet and Ross Fisher have withdrawn.
