Robert Karlsson has pulled out of the US Open because of an eye infection.
The Swede has withdrawn after failing to beat the infection, which causes a lack of depth perception in his left eye.
The Ryder Cup star’s place at Bethpage State Park will go to New York native Andrew Svoboda, who earns the chance to play in front of his home crowd having claimed the first reserve place with rounds of 70 and 69 in qualifying rounds at Century Country Club and Old Oaks.
Svoboda will tee off with Henrik Stenson and Steve Stricker on Thursday morning.
