Tesori to miss Hyundai for birth of child

By Sean Martin, PGATOUR.COM

LAS VEGAS -- Winning a PGA TOUR event comes with an invitation to the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. The trip to Maui in January is a perk enjoyed not just by the player, but his family, friends and inner circle. Paul Tesori won't be at Kapalua for the event, even though his player, Webb Simpson, intends to play.

Tesori will be home in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. His wife, Michelle, is scheduled to give birth in the first week in January.

Tesori wasn't able to caddie at this year's Hyundai Tournament of Champions because of offseason shoulder surgery. He still attended the tournament to help Simpson prepare for the 2013 season. Tesori won't be there this time, though.

Simpson has a good record at the Plantation Course, finishing third in 2012 and 11th this year. Simpson used Jonathan Byrd's caddie, Adam Hayes, at this year's Hyundai.
