 Bubba Watson quits after 16 holes at Riviera

Defending champion Bubba Watson withdrew from the US PGA Tour's Genesis Open on Saturday at Riviera Country Club, Los Angeles in California  with just two holes remaining.

Watson, who began the second round on No. 10, appeared to favour his left wrist during a shot out of the deep rough at the seventh (his 16th hole)  and did not give a reason for withdrawing, according to Golf Channel.
Watson was 8 over and would have missed his second consecutive cut after an opening-round 74. He also missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, his last event, with a 69-74.
Watson won at Riviera in 2016 and 2014 and only missed one cut all of last season, at the Deutsche Bank Championship in September.
Vaughn Taylor, Bryson DeChambeau, Steve Marino, Shane Lowry and Jinho Choi also withdrew from the event.
