Today was the eagerly anticipated showdown between Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods at Jinsha Lake Golf Club in China. It was over 18 holes and was tight all the way with McIlroy eventually winning by a shot over world No.2 Woods. McIlroy shot a 67 and got off to a fast start with two birdies in the first three holes. Woods carded six birdies and two bogeys in his round of 68 and couldn’t overcome the great start from the Northern Irishmen.
Both players had to make long journeys after they were competing in the business end of different tournaments across Asia, McIlroy finishing second and Woods finishing fourth respectively but that didn’t stop them producing great golf at times. Tiger was fresh off a 63 at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia and is showing signs of being back to his best, he just needs to get that putter working and I can see him overtaking Rory next season.
