Dubai teen golfing sensation Chira Noja has had to withdraw from further events after missing last week’s Ladies European Tour Aramco Team Series — England with a rib injury.

“Sadly I had to withdraw from the Amundi German Masters,” the German Dubai resident wrote on social media on Monday. “It’s such a shame, and I was especially looking forward to playing in front of a home crowd, however, with recent events and the injury in London, I have had to realise that I cannot guarantee I can play in Belgium next week nor that I will be playing to my usual standard. Therefore cancelling another LETAS event could be difficult with regard to my Order of Merit tour card qualification.”

The 16-year-old was set to join the likes of Bronte Law, Charley Hull and Georgia Hall at Centurion Club, St Albans, having shot to prominence in the past few weeks — winning the LET Access Series Czech Ladies Challenge in a world record, becoming the youngest winner on the LET at 16 years, 81 days.

The German also finished ninth in the Montauban Ladies Open in France.

Last week, Noja got in touch with Golf Digest Middle East to explain how she picked up the freak injury. “I pulled the rib joint due to hay fever sneezing this morning,” she said.
