Injured Faldo out of WGC - EMC World Cup

RSS

Nick Faldo will miss the WGC - EMC World Cup at Vista Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, due to an injury.
 
Faldo has experienced problems with his elbow and will be replaced in the field by Paul Casey, who will now partner with Justin Rose for the England team Dec. 12-15.
 
'I am carrying a slight injury in my elbow and while it isn't affecting my golf at the moment, I don't want to keep playing indefinitely without getting it sorted out before the start of the 2003 season,' said the six-time major winner.
 
'After the Australian Masters, which I am really looking forward to, I plan to do a bit of rehabilitation,' said Faldo. 'It is really a precautionary measure, but to do this I shall have to pull out of the WGC - EMC World Cup.'
 
Faldo finished in a tie for 11th at last week's Hong Kong Open.
