Paris, France (Sports Network) - Peter Hanson withdrew from the Seve Trophy on Monday due to a lingering back injury.

Hanson, a 2012 Ryder Cup participant, will be replaced by Spaniard Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano on the Continental Europe team, which will take on Great Britain & Ireland at Saint-Nom-la-Breteche Golf Club starting Thursday.

"My back has been an issue for pretty much most of the year and it is still not 100 percent unfortunately," said Hanson. "I have my defense of the BMW Masters in China coming up in three weeks' time which is part of the Final Series on the European Tour and I want to be in ideal shape for that full run of tournaments, which meant I had to withdraw from this week."

Fernandez-Castano is 4-5 in his previous nine matches in the Seve Trophy.

"When I got the call I was really excited about playing in my third Seve Trophy," he said. "I really enjoyed the two previous contests I played, and it is important to support a tournament with Seve's name on it, not only because of what he did for Spanish golf, but for what he did for the game in Europe and the European Tour as a whole."
