ADA, Mich. (AP) - Second-round co-leader Andy Bean was taken to a hospital after he said he wasn't feeling well, forcing him to withdraw before his
final round of the Farmers Charity Classic on Sunday.
The 51-year-old Bean later returned to Egypt Valley Country Club, but there was no immediate word on his condition.
He was on the range at the time he felt ill, and was taken by ambulance to a Grand Rapids hospital, missing his tee time.
Bean, looking for his first Champions Tour victory, was tied with Bob Gilder heading into the final round.
An 11-time winner on the PGA Tour, Bean last won at the 1986 Byron Nelson Classic. He had been scheduled to be in the final pairing for the first time
