J.B. Holmes replaces injured Jim Furyk on U.S. Presidents Cup roster

Less than one week before the opening session of the Presidents Cup, Jim Furyk announced he won't be able to compete for the United States because of a lingering wrist injury.

Furyk has been replaced on the roster by J.B. Holmes, who was added by U.S. captain Jay Haas as an additional wild-card selection.

"There is nothing I take more pride in than representing the United States in the Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup," said Furyk, who previously missed the BMW Championship and Tour Championship because of a bone contusion on his left wrist. "I am deeply disappointed that I will have to withdraw from playing because my wrist, although improving, is still not where it needs to be at this point."

Furyk will still travel to Incheon, South Korea, next week to serve as a fourth assistant captain for the U.S. team. In eight previous Presidents Cup appearances, he has a 20-10-3 record.

Per competition rules, Haas was able to name a replacement player to his roster, regardless of the points list. Holmes finished 12th in those standings -- just outside the top 10 who automatically qualified.

Holmes will be making his Presidents Cup debut. He has a 2-0-1 record in one previous Ryder Cup appearance.
