CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Geoff Ogilvy has withdrawn from the Wells Fargo Championship because of a sore left shoulder.

Ogilvy says his shoulder was bothering him slightly toward the end of the Masters and at the Texas Open. He figured it would be fine when he got to Quail Hollow in Charlotte, but says he wants another week of rest to make sure it doesn’t become a problem.

He is expected to play next week at The Players Championship and in Texas, the home state of his wife.

Ogilvy says it wouldn’t be sensible to try to play at Wells Fargo with so many big tournaments coming up, from The Players Championship to three majors this summer.
