Justin Rose withdrew from the Honda Classic on Tuesday, according to Adam Schupak of Golfweek.

As you might remember Rose injured his shoulder at the end of last season after tossing his caddie a golf ball

He played two weeks ago at the Northern Trust Open, last week at the Match Play Championship (lost in the second round to Ernie Els), and will play the Cadillac Championship next week at Doral.

Rose's loss doesn't diminish the field as much as losing the No. 6 player in the world normally would. 

Of the top 10 players in the world, only Rose, Dustin Johnson, and Jason Day will sit this one out so the field will still be loaded for a good weekend of golf.
