Holmes to have brain surgery, miss 3 months: J.B. Holmes has withdrawn from The Barclays as he prepares to have

EDISON, N.J. (AP) — J.B. Holmes has withdrawn from The Barclays as he prepares to have brain surgery. Holmes has been diagnosed with structural defects in the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance. He has been dealing with vertigo-like symptoms since May and has gone to several specialists. Doctors discovered last week he has Chiari malformations. Holmes is to have the operation Sept. 1 at the Johns Hopkins University Hospital. He says brain surgery sounds scary, but it's a low-risk procedure and he should be able to return to competition about three months after the surgery. Holmes is a two-time PGA Tour winner who played in the 2008 Ryder Cup.
