British Open: Colsaerts woe

NICOLAS COLSAERTS was forced to pull out of The Open at the 11th hour yesterday after injuring his elbow in a fall from a scooter in the tight and constricted streets of Sandwich on Monday night ... American Ricky Barnes was drafted into the Championship.

The Belgian, who claimed his maiden European Tour victory at April's China Open, made a serious error when he rented the scooter to get around Sandwich instead of a car.
