SANDWICH, England (AP) — Retief Goosen has withdrawn from the British Open because of a back injury.

The two-time U.S. Open champion shot a 6-over 76 in the first round Thursday at Royal St. George's, then pulled out of the tournament before beginning his second round Friday.

The South African star, ranked 21st in the world, finished sixth last year at St. Andrews.
