Tiger Woods to compete in Turkish Airlines golf tournament

ISTANBUL, September 8, 2016

Turkish Airlines will present the fourth edition of the Turkish Airlines Open this November, where 14-time major champion Tiger Woods is scheduled to appear.

Taking place from November 3 to 6 at the Regnum Carya Resort, Woods is set to attend the 2016 Turkish Airlines Open, together with the top 70 players in the Race to Dubai standings, to fight for a prize fund of $7 million.

“We are proud to support a top-class golf event, such as the Turkish Airlines Open 2016, and pleased to know that Tiger Woods chose Antalya as a key part of his competitive come back.” said M. İlker Aycı, chairman of the board and the executive committee of Turkish Airlines.

This year the players will be competing over the new layout of the beautiful Carya Golf Club. The Belek region in Antalya is renowned for its golf courses and breath taking surroundings along the Mediterranean coastline.

Located just 25 minutes from Antalya airport, Carya Golf Club is a fitting venue. Measuring 7,186 yards, the course winds its way through the eucalyptus trees, serene lakes and subtle undulations. With a mixture of short strategic holes and demanding long holes the winners will have their work cut out if they are to lift the trophy on Sunday.
Past Champions of the event include Victor Dubuisson (2013, 2015) and Brooks Koepka (2014). - TradeArabia News Service
