Tom Watson withdraws from Toshiba Classic

The 18th Toshiba Classic will be without one of its marquee names and biggest draws.

Hall of Famer Tom Watson has withdrawn from the Toshiba Classic at Newport Beach Country Club because of a wrist injury.

The 39-time PGA Tour winner suffered the injury during a practice round on Tuesday.

Ted Schulz replaces Watson.

Watson tied for 56th in the Toshiba last year.

In 2010, he finished tied for fifth at the Toshiba and tied the then-tournament record with a nine-under-62 in the final round. Nick Price shot a record 60 in the first round last year on his way to his victory.

The Toshiba Classic tournament begins with the first of three rounds on Friday.
