Spencer Levin withdraws from Barclays after sudden death of brother


Spencer Levin has withdrawn from the FedEx Cup playoff opener at The Barclays following the sudden passing of his brother, Blake.

"The Levin family is touched by and appreciative of the ongoing support they have received," said Kevin Canning, Levin’s agent, in a statement released Monday afternoon. "Spencer will be returning to the PGA Tour as soon as time and family will allow."

Levin entered the playoffs at No. 45 in points. He will not be replaced in the playoff field. With Jason Dufner deciding to rest rather than play at Bethpage Black, the field is 123 players.
