Rose Forced to Withdraw from AT&T National Due to Fatigue
Justin Rose has announced he will not play at this weekend’s AT&T National in Bethesda, Maryland due to fatigue and exhaustion.
 
It has been a month Rose is sure to remember.  Having finally clinched his first major championship with a win at the U.S. Open, the Englishman went straight to the Travelers Championship last weekend.  But it was obvious the golfer was struggling through the course in Cromwell, Connecticut, where he finished in a tie for 13th place.
 
The result at Travelers seems to have proven to the 32 year-old that he needed a rest.  Rose stated on Monday that he would not be taking part in the AT&T National, the tournament he won in 2010.
 
“I am disappointed to withdraw but the last three weeks have been extremely demanding for me both mentally and physically,” Rose said in a statement.

“This tournament has been very good to me - especially in 2010 - and I would play if I felt I could. I wish I could be there.”
