ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Vijay Singh has withdrawn from the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill because of a back injury. This is the second straight week the three-time major champion has had to pull out.
He was replaced in the 120-man field on Tuesday by Carl Pettersson, who tied for eighth last week at Innisbrook.
Singh has not won since the end of the 2008 season. He was coming off two strong finishes in Florida until the back problem. It was not clear if he planned to play next week in the Houston Open, where he also is a past champion.
