Los Angeles - Reigning US Open champion Justin Rose will have to wait a few more weeks before making his 2014 USPGA Tour debut.
The Englishman, who is still recovering from tendinitis in his shoulder, will skip both next week's Abu Dhabi Golf Championship and the Farmers Insurance Open in two weeks, the Golf Channel reported.
The 33-year-old also missed last week's Tournament of Champions. His last tournament was the Nedbank Golf Challenge in December, when he tied for seventh.
Rose is now expected to begin his season in February. Last year, Rose did not make his first USPGA Tour start until the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in late February.
