Sam Burns withdraws from WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play after winning Valspar Championship
Last week was Cam, this week is Sam.
Sam Burns released a statement Monday morning announcing his withdrawal from the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship.
“I have made the difficult decision to withdraw from the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play,” Burns said. “After three long weeks of golf, I feel that taking this week to rest and prepare for the busy stretch ahead is best. I appreciate the support and look forward to seeing everyone soon.”
Match-play brackets will be released on Monday, and without Burns and Players champion Cameron Smith, two of the top 10 players in the world. World No. 8 Rory McIlroy, No. 12 Hideki Matsuyama, No. 22 Harris English and No. 47 Phil Mickelson will also be skipping this week’s event.
Maverick McNealy will replace Burns in the field.
