Will Zaratris missed the BMW Championship in Delaware with a back injury.
The 26-year-old American was leading the FedEx Cup standings following his first win on the PGA Tour last weekend.
Zaratriz won the FedEx St. Jude Championship in Memphis after three major second-place finishes at the 2021 Masters and this year’s US PGA and US Open.
The official PGA Tour Twitter account posted footage of Zaratris being treated for an injury on the course, but was forced to withdraw during Saturday’s third round at Wilmington Country Club.
The season-ending Tour Championship kicks off Thursday at Atlanta’s East Lake Golf Club.
Australia’s Adam Scott heads into the third round of the BMW Championship as the leader at 8-under par.
Scott has a one-shot lead over world No. 1 Scotty Schaeffler, Jordan Spieth, Cameron Young and Corey Connors, while Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy was also part of a 6-under five-man group.
Zaratris was five shots behind Scott midway through.
