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.
@BKoepka dislocated a rib on his left side this week. It is back in place but he's in pain. Playing now because he said "I'm not a quitter."
