He had been one of the favourites for the event, which is the final European Tour event of 2017, so it will come as a blow to the organizers.

The event is being held at Randpark Golf Club, and Dylan Frittelli, George Coetzee, Haydn Porteous and Darren Fichardt will all be competing for the tri-sanctioned event.
