ABSTRACT
RORY McILROY will today pocket a $2million cheque just for playing an 18-hole exhibition match at Zhengzhou in central China with his rival at the top of the world rankings, Tiger Woods. However, while it will boost his army of worldwide fans, it could turn out to be a very short-term gain for the Ulsterman's kudos and bank balance. For in choosing to play with the American, McIlroy has opted out of the big-money HSBC Champions WGC which starts in southern China on Thursday. As the 23-year-old jets off to Bulgaria later in the week to watch his tennisstar girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki playing in the last WTA event of the year, a severe blow could be dealt to McIlroy's one remaining ambition of an amazing year. He wants to win both Europe's Race to Dubai money list and top the US Tour's earnings table to sit alongside his brilliant eight-shot major victory in the US PGA Championship in August.
