Mike Weir has withdrawn from the RBC Canadian Open set for next week at Glen Abbey Golf Club.

Weir's agent Danny Fritz tells The Canadian Press the veteran pulled out for personal reasons.

This would have been Weir's 25th appearance in the event.

Fritz said via email that Weir has "recently endured some difficult times in his personal life," which has impacted his golf game.

He has decided his time and focus needs to be at home and with his kids, Fritz said

Fritz added that there's currently no time table for Weir's return to professional golf.

Weir withdrew from his last PGA Tour event, the John Deere Classic, earlier this month after shooting a first-round 73.

The 2003 Masters winner from Bright's Grove, Ont., was a runner-up at the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey in 2004.
