Rory McIlroy defeats Tiger Woods in ‘Match at Mission Hills’ in China

McIlroy needs at least one good result over the next three weeks – including next week’s Turkish Open, which he is due to play in – to secure his place in the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

“I’ve seen a lot of promising signs over the past few weeks in practice and also in competitive play,” he said.

“I still have four tournaments left until the end of the season and I would love to finish 2013 strongly and get a little bit of momentum going into next season.

“I think, as I showed out there, I’m hitting the ball well. Tee to green, the game was very solid, and if I can just get the putter going a little bit more and get a few more putts to drop, then in these last four tournaments, I can hope to contend and maybe pick up a win or two.”

Woods, who was wearing a microphone in the made-for-TV showdown, was heard to swear at one point, and complained afterwards that he had been battling against a heavy cold throughout his round.

“I don’t sound all that well now, but it was nice that it was warm out there today,” he said. “That certainly helped because I think my fever broke and I can start feeling a bit better.”
