Brooks Koepka withdraws from CJ Cup with knee injury
Defending champion Brooks Koepka has withdrawn with a knee injury from the CJ Cup that the PGA Tour has supported.
There was no immediate confirmation of the seriousness of the accident, the length of the world No 1 can be ruled out for and whether or not he will feature at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China, which melts off on October 28 with a $10m (Number 7.7m) bag.
At the CJ Cup on Friday, only two birdies were created by Koepka as he carded a 75 to leave himself 13 strokes behind leader Justin Thomas in the halfway point, and he opted against starting the third round on Saturday.
Thomas took on a nine-under 63 to shoot a two-stroke lead after 36 holes, putting himself in position to win his second PGA Tour event in South Korea in three decades.
South Korean-born New Zealander Danny Lee (66) had been in a tie for second place with all first-round leader Byeong Hun An (69).
