Snedeker hopes to return at Hyundai


Brandt Snedeker, the 2012 FedExCup champion, has withdrawn from the Franklin Templeton Shootout due to injury and will be replaced by two-time PGA TOUR winner Harris English.

English will team with Matt Kuchar on Dec. 13-15 at Tiburon Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Fla. Snedeker bruised his left tibia and strained the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee after jumping off a Segway on Nov. 4 in China. The injury already has forced him to withdraw from the Australian PGA Championship and next week's Northwestern Mututal World Challenge.

“I have been pain-free for the last five or so days. However, based on advice from my doctor, I feel it would be best to not push a return so that I will be at full strength and ready for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions (on Jan. 3-6 in Kapalua, Hawaii),” Snedeker said in a statement on the Franklin Templeton Shootout website. “The Franklin Templeton Shootout is such a fun event and I regret not being there this year. I want to thank Greg Norman for understanding my situation and I know they will have a great 25th anniversary competition in Naples.”

English, who recently won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, and Rory McIlroy are the only current players under the age of 25 with multiple TOUR victories. English won the FedEx St. Jude Classic earlier this year.

Sean O’Hair and Charles Schwab Cup champion Kenny Perry are the defending Franklin Templeton Shootout champions.
