Canadian Brad Fritsch, who made the cut with a shot at spare in the RBC Canadian Open, withdrew before the third round, citing back pain.

Fritsch tweeted: "Not real sure how to describe the emotions of withdrawing this AM from . Just can't handle the back pain."

Fritsch, a rookie this year, was one of four Canadians to make the cut. He entered the week squarely on the 125th spot in the FedExCup standings with only a few weeks remaining until the FedExCup Playoffs. He is projected to drop to 128th.

He is entered next week at the Reno-Tahoe Open.
