Brooks Koepka’s knee injury is bad enough that he withdrew from the Presidents Cup three weeks before it begins.

Koepka, the No. 1 player in the world who led all qualifiers for the American team, said Wednesday the injury he suffered Oct. 18 at the CJ Cup in South Korea is not recovering well enough for him to complete Dec. 12-15 at Royal Melbourne in Australia.

U.S. captain Tiger Woods replaced him with Rickie Fowler.
