AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Darren Clarke withdrew from the Masters on Monday, citing a hamstring injury.
The injury also sidelined Clarke last week at the Valero Texas Open, where he was planning to play. It was to be his first start of the 2013 PGA TOUR season.
The field is now at 93 -- unlike the other three majors, the Masters does not have an alternate list.
Clarke has played in 11 Masters, though the 44-year-old had qualified just once in the last four years. He has just one career top 10 here, a tie for eighth in 1998.
