4 players withdraw from Deutsche Bank

Monday - 8/25/2014, 6:40pm  ET

NORTON, Mass. (AP) -- The Deutsche Bank Championship now has a smaller field than the Masters.

Even though the top 100 advanced to second FedEx Cup playoff event, six players either did not enter or withdrew. That leaves a 94-man field at the TPC Boston.

The Masters, the smallest of the majors, had 97 players this year.

Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia are getting some rest during a hectic month that ends with the Ryder Cup. Graeme McDowell withdrew because his wife gave birth to a girl on Monday, and Paul Casey withdrew because his wife is due with their first child next Monday.

Jason Dufner withdrew with a neck injury. Dustin Johnson is on a "voluntary leave" for "personal challenges."
