Boo Weekley has withdrawn from this week's Franklin Templeton Shootout after the deaths of his grandfather and uncle over the last 10 days.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Boo during this difficult time,” said Taylor Ives, Franklin Templeton Shootout Tournament Director. “We know he was very close with both of these gentlemen. Without question he needs to be with his family at this time.”
Weekley will be replaced by Freddie Jacobson, winner of the 2011 Travelers Championship.
Jacobson will team with Retief Goosen in the tournament at Tiburon Golf Club at the Ritz-Carlton Resort in Naples, Fla. The event, which features 12 two-man teams, begins on Friday.
