Daniel Berger, the defending champion and one of the betting favorites of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, withdrew from the tournament on Wednesday due to a back injury.

There were rumors of Berger's injury following his play at the Farmers Insurance Open, where he was seen at times grabbing at his back. He's withdrawn from tournaments before due to back injuries.

Berger was second on the oddsboards at sportsbooks to only Patrick Cantlay. Berger was +1100 at BetMGM before he withdrew, while the world No. 4 Cantlay was +650.

Kevin Stadler replaced Berger in the field.

This is the second major withdraw of the tournament, one already short on stars. Earlier this week, Will Zalatoris, coming off a second-place finish at the Farmers, withdrew due to a positive COVID-19 test.

The field now features just Cantlay and Jordan Spieth as players ranked in the top 20 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Other top players in the world — including Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and Xander Schauffele — are playing in the Saudi International on the Asian Tour this week.

With Berger and Zalatoris out, expect Spieth, Jason Day and Maverick McNealy among the players to see odds adjustments. Cameron Tringale and Justin Rose are candidates, too.

Cantlay is +125 to finish in the top five. Before his WD, Berger was +250.

Bet Pebble Beach at BetMGM and get a risk-free bet up to $1,000.

This is a big hit for daily fantasy lineups, too.

With Zalatoris ($10,800) out, Berger was second on the board at $10,500 to Cantlay at $11,200. Spieth ($10,300) is now the only other golfer above $10,000 at DraftKings along with Cantlay.
