Thai Aphibarnrat exits PGA Championship with knee injury

LOUISVILLE Kentucky (Reuters) - Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat withdrew from the PGA Championship on Friday because of a knee injury after completing eight holes in the rain-hit second round.

The 25-year-old from Bangkok, who had opened with a one-over-par 72 at Valhalla Golf Club, was five over for the round when he pulled out.

Aphibarnrat, who is known for his 'go-for-broke' style of play, was making his second PGA Championship appearance, having tied for 25th on his debut last year at Oak Hill.
