RORY GETS A TIGER FIGHT
WE won’t have to wait until the Ryder Cup for a duel between Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods – it will happen next week.
As first and second on the FedEx Cup points list, the two biggest names in golf are certain to be paired together for the first of the four play-off events, The Barclays, at Bethpage on New York’s Long Island.
The clash comes after the amazing eight-shot win by McIlroy at the USPGA Championship – the same margin of victory he enjoyed in last year’s US Open.
Woods has now gone 50 months without adding to his 14 majors and his next chance does not come until The Masters next April.
