Justin Rose withdraws from Honda Classic

Basingstoke Gazette: Justin Rose. Justin Rose.

HOOK golfer Justin Rose has withdrawn from this weekend's Honda Classic to rest his troublesome shoulder.

The 33-year-old recently spent three months on the sidelines due to tendonitis in his shoulder, an injury he sustained throwing a ball to his caddy last August.

The world number six returned to action earlier this month, finishing 45th at the Northern Trust Open, before being knocked out in the second round at the WGC Accenture Matchplay last week.

However, Rose's shoulder clearly remains a problem, though his withdrawal from this weekend's event is described as "precautionary" by his manager.

The former Robert May's School pupil is expected to be fit enough to play at next week's Cadillac Championship, the second World Golf Championship event of the season.
