Just one day before the opening round, the number of pre-tournament withdrawals for the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship has already reached 12 competitors from the original committed field list.
Jason Day, a past champion and the world's No. 8-ranked player, withdrew from the tournament Wednesday morning after experiencing dizziness on the course. That announcement came on the heels of a withdrawal from Ian Poulter earlier in the day, who tweeted that he'd suffered a strain in the gym and wouldn't play for precautionary measures.
Kevin Kisner, who's finished in the top-five in three of his last five starts, also withdrew earlier in the week.
Perhaps factoring in these decisions is that host venue TPC Four Seasons Resort has already been deluged by rain, with more heavy storms expected to pelt the Dallas area during some, if not all, of the four tournament rounds.
Scheduled to conclude Sunday afternoon, the tournament last had a Monday finish in 2010, when Day won his first career PGA Tour title.
