Gary Woodland has withdrawn from the Wells Fargo Championship as he continues to recover from a the injury to his left wrist that forced him to withdraw after the third round of the Masters.
Russell Knox, who tied for 30th last week at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans has replaced Woodland in the field. Matt Every also withdrew on Wednesday and was replaced by Alexandre Rocha. The first alternate is now Daniel Chopra.
“There is no structural damage and I have been cleared to play by doctors, but I really feel it is necessary to rest one more week,” said Woodland. “My thanks to (Quail Hollow Club President) Johnny Harris and (Executive Director) Kym Hougham and everyone involved with the Wells Fargo Championship for their understanding. I look forward to returning to Charlotte next year. With one more week of rest, I will be ready to go next week at THE PLAYERS Championship.”
THE PLAYERS will be contested May 10-13 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
