Northern Ireland’s Michael Hoey was forced to pull out of the 143rd Open Championship after just seven holes of his second round on Friday.

The 35-year-old was six over when he had to withdraw because of a problem with his foot.

It is understood Hoey has had callouses on his feet for a while and that is what caused issue on Friday.

“Massively disappointed to have retired from @The_Open during today’s round. Massive gouge out of my foot & can’t walk,” Hoey tweeted after pulling out.

The Northern Irishman does not yet know whether he will be fit enough to defend his Russian Open title next week.
