Thomas Pieters, Belgium’s Ryder Cup wildcard, pulled out of the Dutch Open on Thursday after suffering an allergic reaction to a bee sting. The 24-year-old defending champion was stung during a challenge round earlier in the week.
The Belgian golfer, Thomas Pieters posted on Twitter: “The very unfortunate worst case scenario just happened … One bee sting on Monday during the golf challenge against @joostluitengolfer led to a major allergic reaction with flu symptoms, and forced me to pull out of my favourite tournament of the year.
“Very sorry to all the fans that are on their way to support me and to the organisation. I owe it to you guys to defend my title next year.”
Pieters, one of the longest hitters in the game, will make his Ryder Cup debut for Europe against the USA at Hazeltine, Minnesota, at the end of the month. He is one of six rookies in the 12-man European team which will be defending the title.
