McIlroy pulls out of Thai tournament

Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland reacts on the18th hole during the third round of Dubai World Championship golf tournament


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP)—Rory McIlroy says he is pulling out of next week’s Thailand Golf Championship as he continues to recover from the lingering effects of dengue fever.

McIlroy showed signs of fatigue during his 11th place finish at this week’s Dubai World Championship. He said Saturday he felt exhausted and that blood tests have shown his white blood cell count remains low.

The U.S. Open champion believes he picked up a “mild case of dengue fever” when he was playing tournaments in South Korea and China.

McIlroy said he won’t play again until next month’s European Tour event in Abu Dhabi, and will remain in Dubai for the next few days to rest.
