GOLF: Rory McIlroy returns to action in £625,000-event

Published:Thursday | October 17, 2013 | 7:02 AM

Rory McIlroy says he is looking forward to getting back to tournament action at this week's Korea Open Golf championship in Seoul after a month off.



Former world number one McIlroy has not played since failing to qualify for the PGA's Tour Championship.



Since then, he has confirmed he is setting up his own management company after splitting with Horizon Sports.



In addition to his management changes, McIlroy has also had to fend off media interest in the state of his relationship with tennis player Caroline Wozniacki.



He tied for third at the Korea Open in 2009 and was the runner-up in 2011 behind American Rickie Fowler.



With no opponents of Fowler's calibre this week, McIlroy is by far the highest-ranked player in the field at the £625,000-event.
