Brooks Koepka: Dislocated rib forces WD from Arnold Palmer Invitational


Brooks Kopeka tried to gut out the Arnold Palmer Invitational after suffering a dislocated rib on Friday, but withdrew from Bay Hill on Sunday after 11 painful holes.

The Phoenix Open winner from earlier this year was 3 over when he pulled out after his tee shot on the par-5 12th hole. Koepka entered the final round at 5-under 211, 11 shots behind leader Henrik Stenson, and had hoped to finish out the tournament.

The Florida native will rest for the next couple of weeks in preparation for his first Masters appearance.
