PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Steve Elkington has withdrawn from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, pulling out after five holes with a rib injury.
The 49-year-old was 4 over with a double bogey and two bogeys on the back nine at Spyglass Hill when he pulled out. Elkington was replaced in the field by Tehama head pro Rick Leibovich.
Elkington shot a 1-over 73 in the opening round at Pebble Beach.
This was Elkington’s second start of the season, and his second withdrawal. He also withdrew after two rounds of the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation, where he was 3 under after rounds of 69 and 72.
