Hall withdraws from Porter Cup

Rochester phenom Gavin Hall, the 16-year-old who tied for second at last year's Porter Cup, will not be back in Lewiston this year.

Hall withdrew from the event on Wednesday, because of a right wrist injury he suffered last month, according to tournament director Steve Denn.

"He saw a specialist in Atlanta on [Tuesday] and another guy in Buffalo on [Wednesday]," Denn said. "They prescribed at least two more weeks off. It's obviously tough news, but it's not unexpected."

Denn said last week he was holding out hope Hall, who's the No. 6 junior golfer in the country in the Golfweek/Titleist rankings, would be able to return from the injury in time for the event.

Hall also withdrew from this week's U.S. Junior Amateur, which is being held at Gold Mountain in Bremerton, Wash.
