Knee injury forces Brad Faxon to end season

Brad Faxon could not wait any longer.

Scheduled to undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee on Tuesday, Faxon will miss the remainder of the 2005 PGA Tour season.

Faxon, who injured his knee early in the 2004 season, has played with the injury for almost two years.

"I am disappointed to have to end my season, but my knee has been bothering me for the better part of the year," Faxon said. "My ultimate goal is to play in the major championships next year and to qualify for the 2006 Ryder Cup, and by having surgery now I can strive to meet this goal. I look forward to the 2006 season."

Faxon, a native of Rhode Island and a New England favorite, recently won the Buick Championship in Cromwell, Connecticut for his eighth PGA Tour victory and first since the 2001 Sony Open in Hawaii.

He was in the midst of a solid season and currently is 27th on the season money list and 58th in the World Golf Rankings. The Furman University grad, who turned pro in 1983, is a two-time Ryder Cup team member (1995, 1997).
