Haas, Blanks out for remainder of year

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

Hunter Haas and Kris Blanks will miss the remainder of the 2012 season due to injury.

Haas, who is 149th in the FedExCup standings, announced on Monday via Twitter that he’s undergoing hip surgery and will be “out till next year.”

The 35-year-old made 12 cuts in 24 starts with one top 10 this year. He last played in July at the Reno-Tahoe Open, where he tied for 31st.

Blanks, meanwhile, is out with a shoulder injury. “Well it's official, I'm shutting it down for the rest of the season. Shoulder is still bothering me and I'm tired of hurting,” he said via Twitter.

The 39-year-old made just 11 cuts in 23 starts with only one finish in the top 25. He last played at last month’s John Deere Classic, where he missed the cut. It was his third missed cut in his last four starts.

Blanks, who is 138th in the FedExCup standings, was awaiting word Monday evening on whether or not he would need surgery.
