Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - Gary Woodland has withdrawn from this week's Wells Fargo Championship as he continues to recover from a wrist injury.

Woodland hurt his left wrist during the Masters and pulled out of the year's first major following the third round.

"There is no structural damage and I have been cleared to play by doctors, but I really feel it is necessary to rest one more week," said Woodland in a statement from the PGA Tour. "I look forward to returning to Charlotte next year. With one more week of rest, I will be ready to go next week at the Players Championship."

Russell Knox, who tied for 30th last week in New Orleans, has replaced Woodland in this week's field.
