YORK golfer Simon Dyson has pulled out of the Shenzhen International in China after playing just 12 holes due to fresh problems with his wrist.

Dyson, who missed the cut by six shots at last weekend's Trophy Hassan II in Morocco, was eleven over par and near the bottom of the leaderboard when he took the decision to quit.

He had hit bogeys on three of the first six holes and suffered the embarrassment of a quintuple bogey on the par five ninth.

Although he scored par on the next two holes, he hit a five on the par three twelfth and duly retired from the competition.

Dyson, 39, has struggled with wrist problems for the last two years and needed career-saving surgery in 2015.

His father John said: "Simon is disappointed and bit down in the dumps because he is having trouble with his wrist again."

Former Masters champion Bubba Watson, on six under par, is leading the way at the tournament where bad weather has delayed play.
