Defending champion Justin Rose will be joined by two of his Ryder Cup winning team-mates when he tees off at the Turkish Airlines Open on Thursday.

The World Number Two starts his title defence at Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort alongside Thorbjørn Olesen and Tommy Fleetwood.

The trio, who all lie in the top ten of the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex - with Fleetwood sitting second - will start their opening round at 12.05 in Antalya.

Their victorious Captain at the Ryder Cup, Thomas Bjørn, tees off an hour earlier alongside Nicolas Colsaerts and Alexander Björk, who is 16th on the Race to Dubai.

Lee Westwood
, one of Bjørn's Vice Captains at Le Golf National, begins his campaign at 11.45 alongside Lucas Bjerregaard and Russell Knox, who both are aiming to move into the top ten of the Race to Dubai rankings this week.

The other players in the top 20 who are in action this week are Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Ryan Fox, Brandon Stone and Haotong Li.

 

Aphibarnrat tees off at 11.55 on day one, playing in a group with three-time European Tour winner Thomas Pieters and Matt Wallace, who is looking for a fourth win of the season.

Fox has earned more top ten finishes in the Rolex Series than any other player and he starts his latest bid alongside three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington and 2014 US Open champion Martin Kaymer at 11.25.

Stone, who won the last Rolex Series event in July, plays with 2016 Masters champion Danny Willett and 2017 Made In Denmark winner Julian Suri at 11.15, while Li tees off at 11.35 alongside three-time European Tour winner Shane Lowry and Ross Fisher, who has won on the Tour five times during his career.
