PITTSFORD, N.Y. – Angel Cabrera, winner of two career majors, withdrew during the second round of the PGA Championship due to a left wrist injury.
Cabrera, who lost in a two-hole playoff at the Masters to Adam Scott, is the third player this week to WD. Bo Van Pelt and Jamie Donaldson withdrew after their first rounds.
Cabrera, who has battled tendinitis in the wrist during the last six weeks, shot 10-over 80 in the first round. He received treatment for the wrist Thursday evening and decided he'd try to play Friday, but only finished 11 holes. A spokesman for his management group said Cabrera planned to return to Argentina and will return to the PGA Tour to start the FedEx Cup Playoffs at Barclays.
The Argentinian has won $1,751,279 in 17 PGA Tour starts this season, making 14 cuts and earning six top-25 finishes. Cabrera won the 2007 U.S. Open and the 2009 Masters.
