Casey out of Volvo World Match Play Casey out of Volvo World Match Play

Paul Casey has withdrawn from the Volvo World Match Play Championship due to injury.  Sweden’s Robert Karlsson has been offered and accepted the invitation from Volvo to replace Casey.

Robert Karlsson expressed his delight saying: "I am absolutely thrilled to receive this invitation and will head over to Spain tonight to prepare. I have only qualified once before so this is a great opportunity for me, especially in a Ryder Cup year, and I am really excited about the week ahead.”

A disappointed Casey, who had received a sponsor's invite, added: "Unfortunately despite having had intensive treatment since last Thursday, I have been advised not to play in the Volvo World Match Play Championship this week. I am absolutely gutted as it is one of my favourite events and I was really looking forward to a week of match play to kick-start my season. I am very sorry to miss out, especially as Volvo were kind enough to give me an invite and I wish them a very successful tournament . I won't make any decisions about Wentworth until next weekend."
