Ailing Back Knocks Lovemark Out Of Pebble Beach

PEBBLE BEACH (AP) ― PGA Tour rookie Jamie Lovemark has withdrawn from the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a back injury that will keep him out of Riviera next week.

A spokesman for Lovemark said he withdrew after opening with an 81 on Thursday. Dave Haggith at IMG said Lovemark intends to have doctors look at his back as a precaution.

Lovemark won the Nationwide Tour money list last year. He had made only one cut in four starts on the PGA Tour, when he tied for 58th at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines two weeks ago.
