Schwartzel has withdrawn from the Travelers Championships next week in Hartford, Connecticut, and the South African does not plan to play again until the British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes.
He has decided to play the final round of the US Open on Sunday at The Olympic Club.

Schwartzel still managed a 7-over 217 through three rounds at Olympic.
