tournaments in China to prepare for a lawsuit against his former management
McIlroy said in a statement Monday that a mediation process to resolve his
dispute with Dublin-based Horizon Sports Management "failed over the weekend."

need time away from tournament golf to prepare for the trial."

Champions event the following week, which are both held in Shanghai. His next
event will be the World Tour Championship in Dubai from Nov. 20-23.
