Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy: Florida challenge for duo after early Match Play exits

Sky Bet

Rory McIlroy has revealed he took on Tiger Woods in two private challenge matches on Sunday morning.

The world's top two golfers went head to head at the Medalist club in Hobe Sound, Florida, following their early exits from the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

"We thought we would play our own match play final except it was over 36 holes," said McIlroy ahead of this week's Honda Classic.

"We had two matches. He beat me the first time and I beat him in the second so we're even. We teed off at about 8:00 and I was home by 1:30 so we played quick.

"He putts with the pin in, it's speed golf. It was good, really enjoyable."

World No 1 McIlroy and American Woods have become friends in the past year, with the Northern Irishman now having a base near to the 14-times major winner in Florida and also having joined him in the Nike stable in January.
