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.
