Home

Former Masters champion Trevor Immelman is out of the US Open, citing tendonitis in his left wrist and elbow.

Former Masters champion Trevor Immelman has withdrawn from next week’s US Open citing tendonitis, tournament organisers announced on Sunday.
The South African told United States Golf Association officials that tendonitis in his left wrist and elbow would prevent the 2008 Masters winner from competing at Bethpage State Park’s Black Course.
First reserve Clinton Jensen, of the USA, will take Immelman’s place in the field for the second major of the year having lost a play-off earlier this month at the Orlando, Florida sectional qualifier to Gary Woodland for the third and final qualifying spot.
Immelman follows American Dudley Hart (back) and Sweden’s Robert Karlsson (eye infection) as players to have scratched from next week’s championship.
