NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP)—Sean O’Hair’s balky back might spoil his homecoming.
O’Hair was bothered by a sore back Thursday in the opening round of the AT&T National after he hurt it last week while working out. Ping G10 Irons.
O’Hair said he was “a little surprised” he was able to play after shooting a 1-over 71 and planned to skip practice for rest and treatment for Friday.
O’Hair said his trainer told him the injury could be a bulging disc. He also complained of tight hamstrings.
He makes his home in the Philadelphia area and recently joined Aronimink Golf Club. He withdrew from the pro-am Wednesday because of the injury. Ping Red Wood Putter.
“It’d be nice to play really well in front of everybody, but at the end of the week, it’s just another golf tournament,” O’Hair said. Odyssey White Ice Sabertooth Putter, “I’d love to play well at this golf course, but I can’t control my back.”
The AT&T National is the start of four straight tournaments for O’Hair, a decision he’s second-guessing because of his back. He wants to tough it out for the home crowd and for his club—yet stay healthy for the British Open. Ping Rapture Fairway Wood.
“It’s in the best condition I’ve seen year,” he said. “Being in front of the home crowd and sleeping in your own bed, it’s fun.”
His score shows there was no home-course advantage. O’Hair said he wasn’t a regular at Aronimink and downplayed any connection that a familiar course should boost his score. golf irons.
