Love withdraws, Dawson gets spot

U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III has withdrawn from the Shell Houston Open.

The development was not entirely unexpected. Love withdrew prior to the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard after hurting his rib on Friday “swinging too hard at buried lies,” he later tweeted. Love said he was having a bone scan on Monday.

Late Monday evening Love tweeted congratulations to Tiger Woods for breaking a 30-month victory drought at Bay Hill and his long-time friend Fred Couples, who won on the Champions Tour Sunday.

“And I am out with a cracked rib, hopefully not too long,” Love tweeted.

Marco Dawson replaced Love in the field at Redstone Golf Club.
