Injury Forces Withdrawal From Augusta

Injury Forces Withdrawal From Augusta

Darren has been forced to withdraw from the US Masters through injury.

The 2011 Open champion pulled a hamstring more than a week ago during holiday on The Bahamas island of Abaco and will miss the season’s first major championship.

"It is with deep regret that I will not be able to play at Augusta this year," said Darren. "Playing in The Masters is one of golf’s greatest pleasures and I am very disappointed to be missing out."

The problem prompted Darren to pull out of last week’s Texas Valero Open in the hope that further rest would speed his recovery, but intensive treatment twice a day has failed to bring the Northern Irishman back to the levels of fitness necessary to cope with the undulating terrain at Augusta National.

Darren is to continue with treatment in The Bahamas, but will not make a decision on his comeback until the problem has been resolved.
