Belek: World No. 1 Rory McIlroy’s World Golf Final showdown with 14-time major winner Tiger Woods was put on hold after play was abandoned due to a storm on Wednesday.
McIlroy, without a win from two matches in the inaugural event after his latest defeat at the hands of 2011 US Masters champion and group pacesetter Charl Schwartzel, is bottom of his pool with Woods and Matt Kuchar on one win apiece.
Woods carded a four-under 67 to beat compatriot Kuchar by five shots before the afternoon matches were put back to Thursday when a fierce storm began lashing the course.
McIlroy, who lost to South African Schwartzel by one shot, said he was determined to put up a better show against Woods after his level-par round.
“I don’t have much to play forů So I would like to beat him so that he doesn’t go through to the semi-finals and also get some bragging rights,” McIlroy said.
