The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

Fresh from his sec­ond place fin­ish at the SA Open, Rory McIl­roy has been forced to with­draw from the Abu Dhabi HSBC Cham­pi­onship after tests re­vealed he has sus­tained a rib in­jury. McIl­roy will now com­mence re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and will re­turn to golf when he is fully re­cov­ered from the stress frac­ture. He said: “It’s bit­terly dis­ap­point­ing to have to with­draw. I think ev­ery­one knows how much I love playing this tour­na­ment. To be forced to miss this week through in­jury is re­ally quite an­noy­ing, but I am sure the tour­na­ment will be a huge suc­cess and I hope ev­ery­one in­volved has a great week..”
