SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Brandt Snedeker has withdrawn from the British Open because of a rib injury.

The R&A did not disclose details of Snedeker's rib injury. He has had problems with it over the last few years.

Snedeker was replaced in the field by James Hahn.

Danny Lee also was at Royal Birkdale and becomes the next alternate if anyone else withdraws. Next in line would be Jim Furyk, though he is playing a PGA Tour event in Alabama this week. This is the first major for which Furyk did not qualify since 1995.
