Trevor Immelman pulls out of The Open

Former U.S. Masters champion Trevor Immelman will miss next week's British Open at Turnberry because of a persistent injury to his left wrist.

“The Open championship has always been one of my two favourite tournaments and it has been a thrill for me to compete in the tournament since my first time there in 2002,” the South African said in a news release on Wednesday.

“My wrist injury has been responding well to treatment but at this point it just isn't far enough along to allow me to be ready for the Open.

“As disappointing as it will be to not be there, I have to continue doing what's right for my long-term health. I'm looking forward to continuing with the rehabilitation and getting back to doing what I love, playing golf,” added Immelman. The 2008 Masters champion has experienced discomfort in his wrist for several months and was unable to play in last month's U.S. Open.

Immelman said he hoped to return for the Canadian Open the week after Turnberry.
