ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. - Tournament host Davis Love III pulled out of his own tournament on Thursday.

The 58-year-old Love, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, was expected to make his 788th PGA Tour start this week at the RSM Classic. But he withdrew from the tournament before play began, citing a left wrist injury. He had made the cut six times in 12 previous appearances in the tournament, with a T-4 in 2012.

Scott Brown was the benefactor of Love's decision not to play. Brown teed off at 9:20 a.m. ET on the Plantation Course with Cameron Champ and Sahith Theegala.

Love, winner of 21 PGA Tour titles including the 1997 PGA Championship, is the unofficial mayor of this barrier island, and will still be involved in tournament activities including the trophy presentation on Sunday. The Davis Love Foundation is the tournament's main benefactor.
