Hovland pulls out after sand causes eye irritation


SAN DIEGO — Viktor Hovland of Norway pulled out of the U.S. Open on Friday after getting sand in his eye.

The USGA says Hovland twice sought medical attention, and the irritation was to a point that he chose not to continue.

Hovland withdrew after taking a double bogey on the first hole, his 10th of the second round at Torrey Pines. He was 6 over for his round and 9 over for the tournament, making it unlikely that he would have made the cut.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
