Furyk withdraws from Tour Championship

ATLANTA (AP) Jim Furyk has withdrawn from the Tour Championship because of a wrist injury and doesn't know if he can play the Presidents Cup.

Furyk still gets the $132,000 paid to the last-place finisher in the 30-man field at East Lake, though the sum will not count on the official money list.

Of greater concern is how long the bruised bone in his left wrist will keep him out of competition. He withdrew from the BMW Championship during the first round last week.

Furyk is now directing his efforts to being healthy for the Presidents Cup on Oct. 8-11 in South Korea. He says he is keeping U.S. captain Jay Haas apprised of how the wrist responds to treatment.
