Oosthuizen withdrew less than an hour before his scheduled tee time, giving American Kelly Kraft a spot in the field at Bellerive.

The official announcement was made about 10 minutes before Oosthuizen's scheduled tee time, though Kraft had been warming up in case he got a chance. He joined a group along with Thomas Pieters and Bill Haas.

Oosthuizen's withdrawal means there are only five South Africans remaining in the field: Charl Schwartzel, Branden Grace, Brandon Stone, Dylan Frittelli and Justin Harding.
