Austin Turner withdrew from the 2019 Las Vegas Challenge after his round ended Thursday. He was sitting at 2-under par 57, 13 strokes off the lead.

Turner told Ultiworld Disc Golf the withdrawal was due to injury. He originally tweaked his back due to over hip rotation at USDGC.

“I did rehab all through the offseason. Felt great coming into this week,” Turner said. “I got here on Monday for a practice round and I felt something pop again. Tried to fight it out and nothing was really going well.”

Turner said he is still planning to play the Memorial Championship if his back recovers over the week.
