World number one Brooks Koepka has withdrawn from the United States' Presidents Cup team because of injury and will be replaced by Rickie Fowler.

Koepka, 29, re-injured his left knee during October's CJ Cup in South Korea and will miss the event at Royal Melbourne from 12-15 December.

The Presidents Cup sees a US side compete against an international team, excluding European players.
