Louis Oosthuizen has been forced to withdraw from the Travelers Championship after suffering a recurrence of a back injury.
The 31-year-old South African felt the problem when he hit his second shot, a four-iron, at the sixth hole of his first round at TPC River Highlands.
Oosthuizen made a par at the seventh before informing his playing partners he would be unable to continue after his eighth tee shot.
The 2010 Open champion will see a specialist near his home at West Palm Beach on Friday morning.
