Parnevik hopes to overcome his hip injury Sweden's Jesper Parnevik could be forced to pull out of The Open at St Andrews because of a hip injury.

The 34-year-old first felt the problem after winning the Byron Nelson Classic in the second week of May.

The Ryder Cup star then felt the pain worsen during the US Open at Pebble Beach and now the Swede may be forced to withdraw from The Open, which starts on 20 July.

"The x-ray showed that there was not a problem with the bone, but I'm suffering with overworked hip muscles," said Parvenik.

The Swede is currently receiving treatment from a Italian physiotherapist and is relaxing on an island off the coast of Stockholm.

"I hope to be fully fit for The Open as I love to play at St Andrews."
