Ailing Goosen pulls out of US Open



Twice former champion Retief Goosen has withdrawn from next month's US Open at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, because of a back injury, organisers said on Thursday.

The 44-year-old South African, who pulled out of the PGA Tour's Wells Fargo Championship and Players Championship earlier this month due to the same ailment, will be replaced in the field by a successful qualifier for the season's second major.

Goosen, a seven-time champion on the PGA Tour who is known for his unflappable temperament and good putting on fast greens, won the US Open in 2001 at Southern Hills and again in 2004 at Shinnecock Hills.

The 2013 US Open will be played at Merion from June 13-16.
