LYTHAM, England (AP) - Former champion Mark O'Meara has withdrawn from the British Open next week because of an injury.
The Royal & Ancient did not disclose the nature of the injury in announcing Tuesday that the 54-year-old O'Meara has pulled out.
O'Meara won in 1998 at Royal Birkdale at age 40, making him the oldest player to win two majors in one year. He had won the Masters that April.
O'Meara was not replaced in the field because the Open already is above the 156-man limit.
