Shortly after Rory Sabbatini withdrew from the AT&T National after 12 holes due to a back injury, Davis Love III ended his stay at Congressional prematurely.
Citing a hip injury, Love withdrew following an opening-round 12-over 83, which included 10 bogeys and a triple bogey. His one birdie came at his first hole of the day, the par-4 first hole.
Love missed much of the earlier part of this season following a two-level disk fusion to alleviate pain in his neck. He returned to action at the Players Championship, where he finished T-48. He had made the cut in three of his four starts since the surgery, too.
