BEIJING (AFP) - World number one Rory McIlroy will take on 14-time Major winner Tiger Woods in the one-day Duel at Jinsha Lake matchplay contest in China in October, organisers said on Wednesday.

The duo, two of the world's most famous golfers, will be the only competitors in the 18-hole event, which will be held at Jinsha Lake Golf Club, in Zhengzhou, capital of the central province of Henan, on Oct 29.

"It's an exciting concept and it will be a lot of fun going head to head with Tiger," McIlroy, 23, said.

"The Duel at Jinsha Lake will be the first time myself and Tiger have come together to play a 'one-off' match like this, so I'm really looking forward to it.
