SCHWARTZEL PULLS OUT OF THE TURK­ISH AIR­LINES OPEN

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

South Africa’s Charl Schwartzel is the lat­est high-pro­file golfer to pull out of the Turk­ish Air­lines Open, which starts to­mor­row. The Euro­pean Tour Fi­nal Se­ries event at Reg­num Carya Golf & Spa Re­sort in An­talya has al­ready lost Tiger Woods, Rory McIl­roy and Pa­trick Reed from its field. Schwartzel, who is guar­an­teed his spot at the sea­son-end­ing DP World Tour Cham­pi­onship, will give Tur­key a miss to work on his swing. Af­ter his 30th-place fin­ished in last week­end’s WGC-HSBC Cham­pi­ons, Schwartzel told IOL.co.za: “You know, I thought the only real pos­i­tive for me was that I stayed very pa­tient. I didn’t play very well. “The golf swing’s not do­ing very well and I had a re­ally bad back this week, so maybe that’s a fac­tor. “I will just work on my own swing - it’s just very dif­fi­cult to fix while you’re play­ing in a tour­na­ment.”
