LONDON (AP) Inbee Park will not defend her Women's British Open title after being forced to withdraw from next week's event as she continues her recovery from a left thumb injury.

The South Korean says ''this has been an incredibly hard decision for me to make and the reason I've left it to the very last minute.''

The seven-time major winner is concentrating on being fit for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro next month.
