Toms has been coping with a bone spur in his rotator cuff since the spring, and he has been trying to get by without surgery. The AT&T National was his fourth straight tournament. His agent, Adam Young, said Toms wanted to wait as long as possible to see how he was feeling, but not so long that it affected the travel of whoever replaced him.
Kim had surgery in May and never planned to play the Open. He hopes to return a week later at the Canadian Open.
