Defending champion Jason Dufner withdraws from 2014 PGA Championship

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The defending PGA Champion Jason Dufner has withdrawn from this year's tournament after just ten holes. 

Dufner was ten holes into the first round on Thursday before withdrawing due to neck pain. After shooting an eight on the par five tenth hole, he fell to eight over before deciding to withdraw.

“I've been feeling pretty bad all week,” said Dufner. “I felt bad last week. I haven't made a birdie in 45 holes and I'm just not able to play golf right now. I don't need to be out here. I tried to do what I could to be able to compete some and give it a go, but it is just pointless."
