BELEK, Turkey —
Unlike Woods, Rory McIlroy has been to Turkey before, supporting tennis star girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki for a season-ending event.
Wozniacki is here to support McIlroy this time, and the top-ranked golfer is looking forward to getting back into the swing after the euphoria of the Ryder Cup.
"It's going to be a very exciting week with eight of the best players in the world, and the people of Turkey are going to see an event they've never seen before," McIlroy said. "I am still trying to come down from the high of the Ryder Cup, but it's just nice to be here.
"I haven't touched a club since the Ryder Cup as I've just been chilling out with Caroline, so I will get to the golf course early tomorrow morning and see if it's still there."
