Casey, Davis withdraw early Saturday

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- The two Englishmen to make the cut at this week’s McGladrey Classic have withdrawn from competition early Saturday morning. Paul Casey, who entered the week at No. 127 on the money list, pulled out prior to the start of his round with an undisclosed illness. The 34-year-old’s two-year exemption from his victory at the 2009 Shell Houston Open is set to expire after this season. He was playing this week to try and move inside the top 125 and retain full status on TOUR. Casey is not scheduled to play next week in the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, the PGA TOUR season finale. Brian Davis, a five-time runner-up on TOUR, withdrew after he parred the first hole of his third round with a neck injury. At No. 66 on the money list, his 2012 TOUR card is secure. Davis is committed to play next week’s event at Disney if his neck is good to go by next Thursday. If not, current first alternate Aron Price will get the call.
