Karlsson Pulls Out Of US Open Golf

Sweden's Robert Karlsson will miss next week's US Open because of an eye infection. It's a bitter blow for the World number 14 who had high hopes of winning his first major after finishing fourth at last year's Open at Torrey Pines.  

According to his manager , the 39 year old has been struggling with depth perception in his left eye. Karlsson was the model of consistency last season, winning the European Order of Merit but has struggled so far this season with a variety of ailments. Karlsson is now recovering in Sweden.
