Egyptian Mazen Hesham has been forced to withdraw from this week’s Windy City Open presented by Guggenheim Partners and Equitrust Life Insurance Company after failing to recover from a leg injury.
The maverick shot-maker, who was hindered during the Hong Kong Open in December, has yet to make an appearance on the PSA World Tour in 2016 and is replaced in the main draw of the PSA World Series tournament by Nicolas Müller.
Müller will play Tarek Momen in the first round.
