William has withdrawn the last two weeks. Anyone know what is going on?

Update on William from today's GoUpstate. Hope he is on the mend and has a great TPC tourney in Florida.

PLAYERS WITH AREA TIES:

… William McGirt's return from injury will take place at the second-most prestigious event of his career when the Boiling Springs resident and Wofford product tees it up Thursday at The Players Championship.
The 33-year-old is playing the tournament for the first time after qualifying via his top-125 finish on last year's money list. The event features golf's highest purse at $9.5 million and the winner receives all sorts of perks that include multiple exemptions into all four major championships. The tournament itself is often referred to as the fifth major.
He's played one major over his three years on Tour in missing the cut at last year's PGA Championship on Kiawah Island. He also played in three FedEx Cup playoff events before falling short of making the Tour Championship last season.
McGirt last played competitively April 20 during the third round of the RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island when he missed a secondary Saturday cut after carding a third-round 9-over 80 following a pair of 70s to open the tourney.
McGirt didn't respond to an interview request, but his father, Curtis, told the Fayetteville Observer that his son experienced numbness in three fingers on his left hand during that poor round at Harbour Town Golf Links. According to his father, McGirt continued to have inflammation in his left wrist and received two cortisone shots from a hand surgeon in New York last week. He missed the Zurich Classic of New Orleans two weeks ago before also withdrawing from last week's Wells Fargo Championship held in Charlotte, N.C., McGirt's home state.
“The doctor didn't find anything that required surgery,” Curtis McGirt told the Fayetteville Observer. “There were no tears in the tendons or cartilage damage, but there was quite a bit of inflammation. He was afraid he would have to shut it down for the rest of the year if he had to have surgery.”
Curtis McGirt added the injury first became noticeable during last fall's FedEx Cup playoffs and began to hurt again when the PGA Tour began its March swing through Florida.
“The doctor said he could play,” Curtis McGirt said. “He's going to ice the wrist after he plays, take some anti-inflammatories and see how it goes. I think his swing will be fine, but he might be apprehensive about how hard to go after it.”
McGirt broke a string of three consecutive missed cuts with a tie for eighth at the March 24 Arnold Palmer Invitational, but hasn't been better than a tie for 37th in three outings since. He ranks 104th in earnings with $344,781.

Thanks for posting, WoCo NH Dude. William shot a -2 today at the Players, which is great news.

With two late birdies he made the cut on the number. A great experience to be playing on the weekend in this tournament. Paired Saturday with a good friend.

After finishing -1 and earning a nice check at the TPC, William is in the field this week at the Byron Nelson. http://www.pgatour.com/tournaments/hp-b ... field.html

By the way, if you like a good sports (especially golf) book, you should read American Triumvirate, a book that just came out about Byron Nelson, Sam Snead, and Ben Hogan written by Greensboro's James Dodson, longtime writer for Golf Magazine and golf writer extraordinaire. It is a wonderful treatment of how these three giants changed the game; it won the golf book of the year (Dodson is the only person to win the award twice). Also excellent by Dodson are the 2004 authorized bio of Ben Hogan - terrific; Final Rounds, widely acclaimed book about taking his very ill father to Scotland to play some of the Scottish courses; and his Arnold Palmer authorized bio. I suspect Ruckus and Boulder, and probably others on this board, are already familiar with these books.

Read "American Triumphirant" last summer. Very good book. Great historical account. Well written. If you are a golfer, a must read.
Another must read for golfers is "The Match" by Mark Frost. High stakes betting 4-ball match between amateurs Ken Venturi and Harvie Ward versus Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson at Cypress Point at Pebble Beach/Monterrey Penninsula. Eddie Lowery, Francis Ouimet's caddie at Brookline and wealthy businessman, funded it. Very interesting read.

I agree. I read The Match right before I was fortunate enough to play Cypress. It added a lot to my experience to know what those legends had done on the same track. Great book. Even greater piece of real estate and golf course.

Will have to pick up the American Triumverant.
