"There is always an added edge when you play against a player like Tiger, and there were a few chances this year when we could have gone head-to-head in the bigger tournaments but it didn't quite happen. So I am still looking forward to next season when we can go head-to-head down the stretch — and bragging rights from this week will help a little bit."

Victory for McIlroy over Woods would bring him $450,000 in prize money. Even a loss to the 14-time major winner will carry a $300,000 check.

In other morning matches, Rose defeated Westwood with a round of 66 to his European Ryder Cup teammate's 69. Simpson, the U.S. Open champion, had a 65 to Mahan's 67 for his first victory, leaving his fellow American winless.

The event is sponsored by Turkish Airlines, with the winner earning $1.5 million.
