 Unfit Stenson pulls out of next week's Qatar 

Masters with knee and foot pains

Henrik Stenson has pulled out of next week's Qatar Masters after complaining of pain in his knee and foot during the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.
Stenson underwent keyhole surgery on his right knee the week after finishing a distant runner-up to Marc Leishman at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa in early December.
The Swede salvaged a level-par 72 with three straight birdies from the 15th to reach the halfway stage just three off the lead in Abu Dhabi - his first event since his operation - but he admitted afterwards that he was far from fully fit.
Stenson will now have a week off before returning for the final tournament in the Desert Swing at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, which starts on February 4.
