Woods relishing McIlroy battle
Tiger Woods goes head-to-head with Rory McIlroy over 18 holes at Jinsha Lake in Zhengzhou next week.
And the American is relishing another battle with the only player above him in the world rankings.
"We've all seen how talented Rory is," said the 14-times major winner, who routed McIlroy by six strokes in the World Golf Final in Turkey the week after the Ryder Cup.
"It'll be fun to battle him for the next decade or so and hopefully we'll have many battles to come.
"It's going to be a lot of fun going head to head with Rory. I enjoy head-to-head events so it's great to do this in China.
"China is a growing market and what they've done in golf over the past decade or so is incredible.
"China is young in golf terms but rising fast, especially with the sport joining the Olympics."
The pair will tee it up together on Monday October 29.
