Rory McIlroy?has been told true sports people rise above their concerns after the world No. 2 pulled out of this weeks Turkish Airlines Open.McIlroy has adorned posters, flyers and television commercials for the event, the first of the European Tours Final Series that will decide the outcome of the Race to Dubai, but withdrew on Sunday, describing his reasons to not play in a country which has been hit by a series of deadly bomb attacks in the past 18 months as obvious.But Ahmet Agaoglu, the president of the Turkish Golf Federation, was left surprised and confused by the four-time major champion for leaving it so late to make his decision not to travel to Carya Golf Club in Antalya.I learnt that Rory had dropped out in the media, Agaoglu told the Telegraph, before going on to praise Tiger Woods, who pulled out of the event after deciding he wasnt ready to return to competitive action.Tiger sent me an email an hour before his announcement and apologised, Agaoglu explained. He said he knew we would be disappointed but he was more disappointed than anyone.It isnt the first time McIlroy, who had been offered a £1 million appearance fee as well as the use of a private jet to fly to and from the event, has changed his plans at the eleventh hour. He also pulled out of the Olympic Games in Rio due to the threat of the Zika virus.Agaoglu added: There are things happening everywhere in the world. If they are afraid of such things there is no safe place in the world.This is one of the major golfing events in Europe and I think they have to respect the sponsors because they are investing huge money. Pulling out is not the correct approach. You can be a superstar, an excellent golfer and sit on top of the rankings but to be an athlete you need something more.Id like to thank Danny Willett and Lee Westwood and the guys who are here. Over the last few months we have seen there is a lot of difference between top golfers and top athletes with some golfers missing events because of a few mosquitoes. True sports people rise above this.Westwood himself said he was disappointed.Obviously the most high-profile withdrawal was that of Rory and he brings an awful lot to a tournament, the Englishman told reporters. Hes defending the money list and hes pretty much taken himself out of that by not playing. I guess he didnt feel the way I feel about the place and the security of it all. Rolan Milligan Jersey . -- James Young couldnt wait to apply those tweaks to his jump shot, and the first one he made against UT Arlington told him it could be a good night. Adam Vinatieri Jersey .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. http://www.cheapcoltsjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-jalen-collins-jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . Jihad Ward Jersey . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. Luke Rhodes Jersey . 9. Price, heading to the 2014 Olympics for Canada, was named the First Star after posting wins in three starts with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage. ATLANTA -- The Washington Nationals are heating up, which is bad news for the Atlanta Braves.The Nationals travel to Atlanta to start a three-game series Friday. Theyve won eight of their last 10 and just took two of three from the New York Mets, leaving them with a 10-game cushion in the National League East.The Braves are headed the other way. They are 2-4 on their current homestand and won only two of their last nine as they try to avoid their first 100-loss season since 1988.Now the sagging Braves must host their biggest nemesis. The Nationals are 14-2 against the Braves this year, including a three-game sweep last week in Washington. The Braves have won only two games in its last 25 tries against the Nats. Atlanta needs to go 7-9 or better to avoid a 100-loss season.Were trying to win every game we play, Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. Were playing every game like it was the seventh game of the World Series. Were not going to lay down and give in.Meanwhile, Washingtons magic number to clinch the division is seven.Im not a big stat guy, said bench coach Chris Speier, who was acting as manager while Dusty Baker was attending a family funeral. The magic number stuff? No. You play one game. Win one game. Dont worry about anything else.The first game of the series features Washingtons veteran right-hander Max Scherzer (16-7, 2.78 ERA) against Atlanta rookie right-hander John Gant (1-3, 4.dddddddddddd0).Scherzer is on a four-game winning streak, although he received a no-decision in his last start when he threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings and struck out eight against the Phillies. He is 11-3 since June 1.Scherzer beat the Braves on Sept. 5. He pitched seven innings and allowed two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts. In his career against Atlanta, Scherzer is 4-3 with a 3.84 ERA in 11 appearances (nine starts).Gant makes his 16th appearance and seventh start. He pitched a scoreless inning of relief in his only appearance against Washington on April 6. Gants last start came against the Mets on Sept. 10, when he received a no-decision after allowing three runs (one earned) in 4 2/3 innings.Both teams may be missing a key player. Washingtons Danny Espinosa left the team Wednesday after the game to join his wife in California, where their first child is due. Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman left his team in the seventh inning Wednesday to join his wife for the birth of their first child.The Braves would really miss Freemans bat. He is riding a 20-game hitting streak, the longest in the National League this season, and has reached base in a career-best 36 straight contests.
