CROMWELL, Conn. -- Joe Ogilvie withdrew from the Travelers Championship Friday morning with a back injury and could miss the rest of the season.
Following his opening-round 74 Thursday, Ogilvie went to the hospital for an MRI where it was discovered that he had a herniated disk in his back.
“May have played my last round on the PGA Tour for 2012,” Ogilvie said on Twitter. “Stupid on my part for playing hurt since Houston, but thought it was just age.”
Should Ogilvie miss the remainder of the year, he would be eligible for a major medical exemption for next season.
Prior to this week, Ogilvie, who also battled through a sore wrist last year, had missed three of his last four cuts.
