MARANA, Ariz. – Tim Clark has withdrawn from the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship due to an injury.
The South African, who won THE PLAYERS Championship last year, has been replaced by J.B. Holmes.
Holmes will now play Camilo Villegas in Match 4 at 9:55 a.m. ET on Wednesday. The match is in the Sam Snead bracket.
Holmes has only played in one Accenture Match Play Championship, nearly pulling off an upset of Tiger Woods in 2008 before losing 1 down.
Clark has not played since he tied for second at the Sony Open in Hawaii. He developed severe blisters on his foot there, then was sidelined by an elbow injury and withdrew from the Bob Hope Classic, AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and Northern Trust Open.
The next alternate is Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher, followed by Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand and Lucas Glover of the United States. – Helen Ross
