Justin Rose, the reigning U.S. Open champion who also won the AT&T National in 2010, withdrew from the event on Monday. He had been planning to play at Congressional without a practice round.
Rose admitted on Twitter on Sunday that he hit a 'wall' during the final round, when he shot 71 and ended up tied for 13th at the Travelers Championship.
"I'm disappointed to withdraw from the AT&T National, but the last three weeks have been extremely demanding both mentally and physically," Rose said in statement. "This tournament has been very good to me - especially in 2010 - and I would play if I felt I could. Tiger and his Foundation run a great tournament, and I wish I could be there."
After the U.S. Open, Rose embarked on a media tour of New York before heading to Hartford for the Travelers. Rose has already played 10 events this year, missing the cut once (THE PLAYERS) and racking up five top-10s.
Rose's spot in the field was taken by Brendon Todd.
