Johannesburg - Defending champion Henrik Stenson has withdrawn on the eve of the 103rd South African Open Championship, citing his ongoing wrist injury, said tournament promoter Africa Sports Holdings.

“Despite my performance in Dubai, I am still having concerns about my wrist, and it really needs to rest,” Stenson said.

361 qualifiers will challenge for 16 spots at three venues – Kempton Park Golf Club, Irene Country Club and Wingate Country Club – on Tuesday.
