Lehman withdraws from final tournament


SONOMA, Calif. – Tom Lehman has withdrawn from the Charles Schwab Cup Championship because of a family emergency, leaving 29 players in the season finale on the Champions Tour.

The nature of the emergency was not disclosed on Wednesday.

Lehman was 22nd on the money list to qualify for the tournament. Because he withdrew, the winner of this year's tournament will receive 884 points and $442,000, meaning four players will have a chance to claim the $1 million annuity for winning the Charles Schwab Cup competition.
