Aramco Team Series London is without another of its big names this week.

World No.1 Nelly Korda withdrew from the event at the Centurion Club after being bitten by a dog last week.

The American – set for her only start in England this year – said in a statement that she needed time to ‘receive treatment and recover fully’.

Fellow dog-bite victim Alison Lee gave an update on the freak incident when speaking to reporters at the event today.

“She asked me a lot about what my symptoms were when I got my dog bite,” Lee said.

“My dog bite got seriously infected, so I was actually hospitalised for three days. But yeah, it’s an unfortunate circumstance and definitely scary.

“She got bitten by a dog that she didn’t know, it was just at a random coffee shop. I am hoping for a speedy recovery for her.”

Now, Charley Hull is the next player to pull out of the contest. The 28-year-old played just six holes before withdrawing in Hemel Hempstead with a shoulder injury.

And Hull later revealed on her Instagram story that the injury was due to a “nasty fall.”

“Today I had to withdraw from the @aramcoteamseries London following medical advice, due to ongoing pain in my shoulder following a nasty fall on Sunday night,” she wrote.

“I’m so disappointed as I always love playing in this series, particularly in front of a home crowd.

Hull, meanwhile, went viral again last week after she produced one of the finest club twirls of all time.

It came at the Dow Championship, playing alongside close friend Georgia Hall. The pair finished T5, four shots behind Atthaya Thitikul and Ruoning Yin.

She even skipped a practice round to watch England play out a goalless draw with Slovakia in the nation’s final Euro 2024 group stage fixture.

“I wanted to watch the England game – so I literally just said ‘Ads (caddie Adam Woodward) let’s just go to the pub instead,” Hull said.

The two-time LPGA Tour winner will hope her illness passes quickly with a busy month on UK soil looming.

The Women’s Scottish Open tees off at Dundonald on August 15 before the AIG Women’s Open heads to the Old Course one week later.
