Snedeker to miss Tiger’s event
World number nine Brandt Snedeker ‘s persisting injury woes has seen him withdraw from Tiger Woods’ Northwestern Mutual World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club, California, which takes place next month.
Snedeker is recovering from a leg injury he sustained during a corporate outing in Shanghai which saw him pull out of the Australian PGA Championship earlier this month.
His management company told Reuters that he is “ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation programme”, but added that he did not want to rush his return as he has a full schedule planned for the first few months of the new year.
Snedeker’s indicated that he would defend his Pebble Beach National Pro-Am title in February to add to the six PGA Tour wins he already has under his belt.
A replacement to take the 32-year-old’s place in the 18-man field at Sherwood Country Club will be announced at a later stage.
