Woods to participate in Turkish Airlines Open

Belek (Turkey), May 28 (IANS) World No.1 golfer Tiger Woods will participate in the $7 million Turkish Airlines Open that will be played Nov 7-10 at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal course here.

The tourney will form part of the inaugural Final Series for The Race to Dubai.

Woods, a 14-time Major Champion, will be part of the 78-man field, having also played in last year's Turkish Airlines World Golf Final - a precursor to the new European Tour event.

Woods, who has had four wins this season on the US PGA Tour, said: "I had a great time during my first visit to Turkey. Turkish Airlines, the Turkish Golf Federation and the fans who came to watch made it a really special event and I'm looking forward to playing there once again."
