Sam Burns wants a break after a hectic three-week period.
Burns has been on a roll lately, with a T-9 result at the Arnold Palmer Invitational two weeks ago, a T-26 showing at the Players Championship last week, and a playoff win Sunday to defend his Valspar Championship title.
The 25-year-old pulled out of this week’s WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play on Monday morning, just hours before the bracket was revealed at noon ET.
He announced his withdrawal from the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play on Twitter, saying, “I have made the painful decision to withdraw from the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.” “After three weeks of golf, I believe that resting and preparing for the busy stretch ahead is the wisest course of action. I appreciate the help and hope to see everyone again soon.”
