Viktor Hovland of Norway is out of the U.S. Open with sand in his eye.

He withdrew after taking a double bogey on the first hole, his 10th of the second round at Torrey Pines. Hovland was 6 over for his round and 9 over for the tournament, making it unlikely that he would have made the cut.

The USGA says Hovland twice sought medical attention, and the irritation was to a point that he chose not to continue.
