Thomas Bjorn
THOMAS Bjorn’s chance to end his best season with a first World Cup of golf success has been dashed by injury.
The 40-year-old Dane, who has competed in four previous World Cup encounters, has told officials the recurrence of an old neck injury has forced him out of this week’s US$7.5-million event in Haikou, Hainan Province.
"I am really disappointed to have missed out on the chance to play for my country at Mission Hills," Bjorn said. He has been replaced in the Denmark team by 21-year-old tour rookie Thorbjorn Olesen who was runner-up this year in the Italian and French Open.
