NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - Boo Weekley has withdrawn from the Franklin Templeton Shootout because of two family deaths.

Tournament organizers say Weekley's grandfather and uncle died in the last 10 days. No other details were immediately available. Tournament director Taylor Ives says Weekley was close to both and needs to be with his family this week.

Weekley won the Colonial in May and qualified for the Tour Championship for the first time in six years.

He was replaced in the field at Tiburon Golf Club by Freddie Jacobson, who will team with two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen.

The tournament starts Friday.
