Alastair Roper, the tournament director, said he received a letter from Toms stating that Toms is concerned of his safety after the terrorist attacks Sept. 11.
'I still haven't given up hope,' said Roper. 'I'm doing everything I can to get him here, but I have to add that things are not looking well at the moment. He has already withdrawn from the Dunlop Phoenix tournanment in Japan this month.'
Also entered is American Jim Furyk. 'Jim has a wonderful attitude,' said Roper. 'He is different to most other golfers. He gave me the assurance that his partipation at Sun City was never in the balance, despite the events of Sept. 11.'
