Pinnacle Bank Championship notes: Defending champion David Skinns will skip PBC with baby on the way

David Skinns is No. 136 in the Korn Ferry point standings after withdrawing from last week’s TPC Colorado Championship.

Defending champion David Skinns has a good reason for not playing this year in the Pinnacle Bank Championship.

Son No. 3 is on the way. Soon.

“The doctor advised me it was best to stay home,’’ Skinns said in a video the tournament posted on social media. “So everyone have a great week. I’m sure you guys are going to be treated to some great golf. The fans in Omaha are the best of the year and I’m going to miss it for sure, but hopefully I’ll be back soon.”

Skinns, from Lincoln, England, also said in the video that he has a nagging back injury. He’s No. 136 in the Korn Ferry point standings after withdrawing from last week’s TPC Colorado Championship.
