Robert Allenby, who tied for fourth here last year and was a runner-up in 2008, has withdrawn due to illness.
The Aussie, who has a total of five top-20s in seven career starts at the St. Jude Classic presented by Smith & Nephew and is eighth on the career money list here, played nine holes Thursday before pulling out. In the nine holes he did play, Allenby had four bogeys, a double bogey and two birdies on the back nine at TPC Southwind. -- Brian Wacker
