A failed military coup was quelled in July.</p><p>The Turkish Airlines Open is the first event in the European Tour Final Series, set to be played Nov. 3-6 at the Regnum Carya Golf &amp; Spa Resort. Tiger Woods announced intentions to play this event in September but backed out on Monday when he withdrew from the PGA Tour&rsquo;s Safeway Open. Rory McIlroy is the top-billed player in the kickoff to the three-event series, with a $7 million purse. Victor Dubuisson of France is the defending champion.</p></div>
