Scot Martin Laird has withdrawn from this week's French Open on the European Tour due to the death of his grandfather, according to the Associated Press.
Laird was aiming to make his debut at the event, looking to get closer to playing the 12 European Tour required events for membership.
He is a long shot, however, to make the team on merit. Laird is 70th on the European points list and is 22nd on the world points list, which is determined by Official World Golf Ranking points accrued during the qualifying period.
THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
