Former No. 1 golfer in the world, Jason Day, will not be playing in the World Golf Championship-Mexico Championship. Day’s withdrawal is due to a double ear infection and the flu.

Here’s the statement from Day:

I’m truly disappointed to announce that I won’t be able to play in next week’s World Golf Championship-Mexico Championship. I have a double ear infection and the flu, which precludes me from preparing for and playing in the tournament. I have heard great things about the Mexico Championship and the golf course. I want to thank the Salinas family for their support of the event. I look forward to teeing it up there next year.”

Prior to Day’s announcement, the world’s Top 50 ranked golfers were slated to play in the WGC-Mexico. You’ve got to feel for Day because as a pro golfer, to play with¬†that many great players at once is certainly something to cherish.

Day missed the World Golf Championships Cadillac Championship in 2014 as well due to a thumb injury. Hopefully he will bounce back strong when he gets better from his latest setback.
