Spencer Levin is eyeing the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am to return to competition, but he may not play at all during the 2013 season.
In an interview with The Sacramento Bee, Levin's agent, Kevin Canning said that if his client isn't completely ready to go by Feb. 7, Levin might sit out the entire year due to the compressed schedule. Simply, with fewer tournaments, there's incentive to rest and heal and start 2013-14 anew with a medical extension. Levin, who is fully exempt for 2013, has been sidelined since having surgery to repair a detached ligament in his left thumb in early October. "He's able to play, Canning said, "and there's not a lot of discomfort, but (the thumb) is stiff and he's noticed a little weakness in it. He's flinching at impact and doesn't really trust it. Playing back-to-back (days) has been a problem, too." The obvious advice here is to wait it out.
