I noticed earlier this week he's played in 20 events and only made 3 cuts. This week, another missed cut with the worst score in the field.

What happened? Too much spring break?

I have no info, but it makes me wonder if it's another case of getting too technical searching for something (such as Luke Donald trying to change his swing to get more distance) and ruining what he naturally does as a result.

Without too much detail he was extremely childish to the fans. Came across as a real ass hat. And didnt acknowledge any of the volunteers post round like every other golfer did.

Not the way to become a fan favorite. Sounds like a clown.

JB posted that the PGA released a statement that he withdrew due to an elbow injury.

Just noticed he withdrew after shooting a 79(+9) worst score in the field on what seems like a pretty gettable course.
I don't wish an injury on anyone but I hope his play lately might be injury related and can be fixed a little easier than his head.
