Golf: McIlroy edges out Woods in China

Published: Oct 30, 2012, 09:18 IST | AFP

Rory McIlroy outscored Tiger Woods for only the third time in 11 head-to-head clashes in China yesterday, winning their "Duel at Jinsha Lake" with a five-under-par 67 to the American's 68

The world’s top two golfers met for a one-off match after competing in Shanghai and Kuala Lumpur over the weekend.

McIlroy was runner-up to Ryder Cup teammate Peter Hanson at the BMW Masters and Woods fourth behind compatriot Nick Watney in the CIMB Classic.

Three weeks after Woods defeated the 23-year-old by six strokes during the World Golf Finals in Turkey, it was McIlroy who always held the edge this time.
