World No. 1 Jon Rahm withdrew from the Fortinet Championship's Wednesday pro-am because of a stomach illness. 

Rahm was supposed to tee off at 8:40 a.m. PST and moved his press conference to 2 p.m. But he then canceled his pre-tournament presser altogether and the Tour announced he would not appear at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course at all on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old Spaniard is scheduled to tee off at 7:44 a.m. local time in Round 1.
