Rumour: Tiger and Rory to play in new money match

Tiger Woods And Rory Mc Ilroy

According to reports in the United States, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy could be set to play in a one-off money match in Japan later this year.

The pair are expected to take part in a competition at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club near Tokyo on October 21.

That’s the Monday before the same venue stages the inaugural Zozo Championship, the PGA Tour’s first-ever official tournament in Japan.

The Golf Channel has reported that Woods and McIlroy will be joined in the one-off event by former world No.1 Jason Day and Japan’s highest-ranked golfer Hideki Matsuyama.

It is also expected that the event will be sanctioned by the PGA Tour and will follow a similar format to the popular Skins Game, which took place annually from 1983 until 2005.

Woods competed in that event seven times.

The Masters champion hasn’t played in Japan since 2006, when he lost to Padraig Harrington in a play-off for the Dunlop Phoenix.

Where will next year's men's major take place?

It would be the second year in a row that Woods has played in an off-calendar money match, following his $9m winner-takes-all battle with Phil Mickelson in Las Vegas last November.
