WALES OPEN: Injury forces Howell to retire at Celtic Manor
SWINDON'S David Howell has pulled out of the Wales Open just two holes into his second round.
The Broome Manor pro had complained of a wrist problem following his opening 18 at Celtic Manor yesterday.
Resuming at five-over, Howell sunk a par at the 11th before bogeying the 12th and he then decided to call a halt to proceedings.
The Wales Open was Howell's second tournament back following a six-week mid-season break.
