Adam Scott has withdrawn from the Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship after injuring his knee on the weekend.
The world number 17 was running out of the water after a swim at the beach on Sunday when he slightly twisted his knee. As a precautionary measure Scott had an MRI yesterday, with results due back today.
“Adam was going for a swim on Sunday morning and was making his way out in the shallows. He stood in a sand depression and twisted his right knee a little bit”, said manager Justin Cohen.
“There’s just a minor little issue with his knee and this is fully precautionary, but we do expect him to be back in action and ready to go for the Australian Open next week.”
One of the tournament favourites, Scott was disappointed not to be able to play in the first of two events he is to play in Australia and reluctantly withdrew this morning.
“This is an event that he loves coming back for, as are all the Aussie events,” said Cohen. “He certainly enjoys coming up to Coolum, it’s a great atmosphere up here. It’s just one of those things. He is obviously very disappointed not to be able to play this week.”
“We’ve been icing the knee and doing a few things like that with it, but as I said we fully expect him to be ready to go for next week. This is purely precautionary.”
The 2008 Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship will be played at the Hyatt Regency Coolum, Queensland from December 4-7.
