Justin Rose Forced to Withdraw From Honda Classic

Justin Rose Forced to Withdraw From Honda Classic
World number 6 Justin Rose has been forced to withdraw from the Honda Classic this weekend due to a shoulder injury.
Rose has been struggling with tendinitis in his right shoulder since last August.  Having taken an extended break following the Thailand Golf Championship in December, Rose only returned to the Tour in early February for the Northern Trust Open in California.
In a statement released through his management it was announced the TaylorMade player would be taking a rest this weekend.  Stating, “While continued rehabilitation continues to help the persistent tendinitis in Justin's right shoulder, scheduling four straight weeks of competition was aggressive to start the 2014 season.”
The 33-year-old hopes to be able to play in next week’s World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship at Doral, a tournament he won in 2012.
Rose might be out of action this weekend in Florida but the Honda Classic can still boast 7 of the top 10 players in the world including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott.
