A wrist injury will keep Jim Furyk out of the 2015 Presidents Cup.

The news, which had been speculated after Furyk withdrew from the BMW Championship and season-ending Tour Championship, was officially announced on Friday.

Furyk's unwavering play and demeanor made him a popular playing partner in team competitions. He is also one of the most experienced golfers in American history, as this was to be his 17th appearance as a Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup member.

After two days at Oakland Hills, J.B. Homes is the only player under par.

United States Captain Jay Haas has picked J.B. Holmes as Furyk's replacement. The 33-year-old Holmes is in the midst of a career revival in 2015, highlighted by a win in April's Shell Houston Open. Holmes finished the year on a high note, placing fourth in Chicago and eighth in Atlanta.

The Presidents Cup begins on October 8 at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon, South Korea.
