Lee Trevino said he hit too many 5 woods during two rounds of Pro-Ams leading up to the SAS Championship in Cary and was forced to withdraw because of his back.
Trevino, a crowd favorite anywhere he plays, flew out this morning shortly before his 10:40 a.m. tee time. Alternate John Morse took Trevino's spot in the SAS.
When the announcement went out over the loudspeaker that Trevino had withdrawn, you could hear the groans ripple throughout the crowd at Prestonwood Country Club, which by the way is pretty large for a Friday.
Trevino, who turns 70 in December, still plays a half dozen events or so each year.
