Dubai - Anthony Kim says he will not be going to the Dubai World Championship to compete for the $7.5 million bonus pool, even though the American has easily qualified.

Kim, after losing in the final of the World Match Play Championship last week in Spain, moving up to No 39 in the Race to Dubai standings on the European Tour. He already has played 11 events and is assured of qualifying for the 60-man field in two weeks.

Kim says he did a poor job of scheduling this year, and he's ready to go home. He still has the two-day Kiwi Challenge next week in New Zealand.

Kim will not be replaced at the Dubai World Championship.
