Tony Finau is on the biggest heater of his career. But that run will not extend to Sea Island.

Finau, fresh off his win at the Cadence Bank Houston Open, has withdrawn from this week’s RSM Classic.

According to the PGA Tour’s communication team, Finau has dropped out due to injury. As of this writing, Finau’s specific ailment is unclear.

The news comes just days after Finau won at Memorial Park in Houston by four shots. Finau’s triumph in Texas marked his third win in his last seven starts, yet his hot streak truly began in May at the Charles Schwab Challenge in May, as a T-4 at Colonial was the spur for seven top-10 finishes in a 12-tournament stretch. The 33-year-old entered the week 12th in the Official World Golf Ranking and was listed as the tournament favorite.

Though the RSM Classic marks the end of the tour’s calendar year, Finau is currently listed to play in Tiger Woods’ Hero World Challenge in early December.

Taking Finau’s place in the RSM field is Kevin Chappell. William McGirt also withdrew, with Sung Kang jumping in his spot.
