KAPALUA, Hawaii – Hey, these trips to paradise might be warm and cozy, but they can sometimes be painful.

Just ask Geoff Ogilvy, who definitely won’t win a third straight tournament here at the Plantation Course. That’s because he has withdrawn from the Hyundai Tournament of Champions thanks to an injury from . . . are you ready? Swimming.

Geoff Ogilvy tweeted a photo of the injured finger that caused him to withdraw from the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Ogilvy late Monday said he tripped in shallow water and “I grazed my finger on some reef.” The gash to his right index finger required 12 stitches and “it causes discomfort to bend or place any pressure on it.”

Not that Ogilvy is alone in this island mishaps. Another member of the select field, Zach Johnson, said he will give it a go despite a toe injury that he suffered last weekend during a family vacation to the Grand Cayman Island.

Johnson said he was wearing sandals when he went running to put out a small fire caused by sparklers. He jammed his right toe into a step on stairs, and while he insisted it’s not a big deal, it does cause some

discomfort. To alleviate that, Johnson had a friend, Marc Wahl, cut out a hole in the toe of his right golf shoe.

“I’m going to try. We’ll see how it goes,” Johnson said.

Ogilvy, who was attempting to become the second Aussie to win three straight times in this season opener (Stuart Appleby being the other), did not say whether he would play next week at the Sony Open.

His withdrawal leaves 33 players in the winners-only field.
