Qatar balks at Tiger fee
Last updated: 11th January 2013
Organisers in Qatar say they are not prepared to pay Tiger Woods $3m to play in this month's Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.
The European Tour event is set for January 23 - 26, the week after the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, where Woods will kick off his 2013 campaign.
But the Qatar Golf Association has told Woods they are not prepared to agree to his 'excessive pay demands' to compete in the tournament.
Hassan al Nuaimi, president of the Qatar Golf Association, told Doha News: "Tiger Woods demands $3 million just for an appearance.
"It is not worth paying for a tournament of $2.5 million in prize money."
Paul Lawrie will defend his title at Doha Golf Club, an event which will also feature Englishman Justin Rose and American Jason Dufner.
