Rose to take month off after missing Saudi cut


"I could have made a run in the morning tomorrow if I had scored slightly better in the first round".

He apologised for his behaviour and said in a statement released by the Tour: "I respect the decision of my disqualification".

World number three Dustin Johnson edged ahead of Rose and Koepka after signing for a two-under 68 to sit alongside fellow American Bryson DeChambeau, last week's Dubai Desert Classic champion, and Sweden's Henrik Stenson in a group tied for 31st place. "I see the boys are tearing it up and the greens are getting smoother as the week goes on, so I'm looking for some low scores on the weekend".

In idyllic weather on the Red Sea in King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), a surging Johnson - who started on the back nine - notched two consecutive birdies on holes 10 and 11, before adding another pair of birdies on the par four 15and par five 18.
