BEIJING (AFP) - Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will go head-to-head in a two-man exhibition for the second time in China, following last year's outlandish Duel at Jinsha Lake, organisers said on Saturday.

Golf's world No. 1 and No. 2 will appear at an as yet unnamed venue on Oct 28.

McIlroy won last year's event in Zhengzhou but it is remembered mainly for the behaviour of fans who stole balls from the driving range and were rugby-tackled by staff as they mobbed the players on the fairways.

The 18-hole strokeplay tournament, held to advertise a new housing development, also featured the bizarre sight of models standing at the tee boxes, helicopters, drum majorettes, fireworks and a luxury yacht.
