Woods, McIlroy paired

Wed., Jan. 16, 2013

The world’s two top golfers are meeting more and more often on the course, but neither No. 1-ranked Rory McIlroy or Tiger Woods are ready to call it a rivalry. The pair, set to meet at this week’s Abu Dhabi Golf Championship ( 1 a.m. Thursday, Golf), have established a blossoming relationship since playing together for the first three rounds of last year’s tournament and have expressed a mutual respect for one another’s game. But for a more heated rivalry to emerge, they both agreed they need to face each other Sunday with a tournament at stake.
