Elkington out of Greg Norman Event

Australian Steve Elkington has pulled out of the Greg Norman International because of an ear infection.

Tournament director Monique Tomson said: "A very disappointed Steve Elkington became ill during the Pebble Beach Classic (last week) and has been instructed by his doctors not to fly."

The tournament, which starts on February 8, is jointly sanctioned by the European and Australasian PGA Tours.

Although 1995 US PGA champion Elkington will not be making a rare appearance in his home country, the field includes Spaniard Sergio Garcia, world matchplay championship runner-up Pierre Fulke, and New Zealander Michael Campbell, who won the Heineken Classic last week, in Perth.

Tournament organisers had boasted last month how Norman had convinced close friend and fellow United States-based Australian Elkington, a former Australian Open champion, to play in his tournament.

Elkington fell out with Australian Open organisers when they failed to feature him in tournament promotions after his 1995 PGA success.
