Haikou - Thomas Bjorn has told officials the recurrence of an old neck injury has forced him out of this week's $7.5-million event in China.

"I am really disappointed to have missed out on the chance to play for my country at Mission Hills," Bjorn said in a statement released by organisers.

He is hoping to be fit to take his place in next week's Nedbank Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club at Sun City.

Bjorn has been replaced in the Denmark team for the Haikou event, which starts on Thursday, by 21-year-old tour rookie Thorbjorn Olesen who was runner-up this year in the Italian Open and French Open.
