ANTALYA, Turkey (AP) -- Simon Dyson of England has withdrawn from the Turkish Open next week as he waits for a disciplinary hearing.

Dyson is No. 68 in the Race to Dubai. The top 60 advance to the European Tour's season finale in Dubai, so Dyson's season is over.

He was disqualified from the BMW Masters last week for tamping down the green in direct line of his short par putt in the second round. He was disqualified for not adding the two-stroke penalty to his score. Dyson was tied for second at the time.

The European Tour has ordered a disciplinary hearing by the end of the month for Dyson. If found to be in serious breach of the conduct code, penalties range from a reprimand to a fine to a suspension.
