Scott out of Australian PGA with surf injury

Scott out of Australian PGA with surf injury

Adam Scott injured his knee in a surfing accident and has withdrawn from this week's Australian PGA championship.
Scott told tournament officials on Tuesday that he hurt his right kneecap at nearby Coolum Beach on Sunday. His manager said Scott, a longtime surfer, is expected to play in next week's Australian Open in Sydney.
The 28-year-old Australian golfer has six titles on the U.S. PGA Tour and six on the European Tour.
"He was coming out of the surf on Sunday morning and he's obviously stood in a sand depression," said Scott's manager, Justin Cohen. "He went for a body surf and was making his way through the shallow water and twisted his knee a little bit.
"It's a very minor, little issue with his knee and we fully expect him to be back in action and ready to go for the Aussie Open next week."
The Australian PGA, with John Daly, defending champion Peter Lonard and Robert Allenby in the field, begins Thursday.
