$3.7m fees for Woods, McIlroy at China exhibition
SHANGHAI (AP) - Tiger Woods is expected to get a US$2 million (S$2.4m) appearance fee and Rory McIlroy US$1 million for their one-day exhibition match Monday in Zhengzhou, China.
The top-ranked McIlroy and Woods, a 14-time major winner, will play their first head-to-head match in an event without other competitors at Lake Jinsha International Golf Club.
The 18-hole medal-match has been dubbed the 'Duel at Lake Jinsha.' Woods said: "We're going to try and put on a good show, shoot a low round and have a little bit of fun."
McIlroy finished second Sunday in the BMW Masters in Shanghai, while Woods tied for fourth in the US$6.1 million CIMB Classic in Malaysia.
