Luke Donald pulls out of Honda Classic

Published:

Luke Donald has withdrawn from the Honda Classic in order to protect his wrist.

The Englishman was forced to concede his Accenture Match Play tie with Ernie Els last week because he felt a twinge in the left wrist he had surgery on last year.

The damage was to the scar tissue, rather than the tendon that was operated on, and the injury isn't thought to be too serious.

Donald's withdrawal is precautionary and he's expected to be back in action very soon.
