Golfer Bill Haas drops out of tournament after car crash: manager


(Reuters) – Professional golfer Bill Haas escaped serious injury when he was involved in a fatal three-car collision late on Tuesday in Los Angeles, but will drop out of a tournament as a result, his manager and local officials said on Wednesday.

Haas was scheduled to play in the Genesis Open at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades that begins Thursday, but will withdraw to return to his home in Greenville, South Carolina, to recover, his manager said.

The Los Angeles fire department said at least one person died in the crash.

“While Bill escaped serious injuries and has been released from the hospital, he is understandably shaken up and – more importantly – his deepest condolences go out to the host family during this tragic and difficult time,” manager Allen Hobbs, of Players Group Management, said in a statement.
