Rory McIlroy says that he is happy with his game after picking up his first win of a fruitless 2013 in an exhibition against Tiger Woods.

Rory McIlroy has said that he hopes to finish 2013 on a high after a tough season on the golf course.

The two-time Major champion registered his first win of the year earlier today in an exhibition against Tiger Woods in China and is now looking to "pick up a win or two" in the final few tournaments.

Speaking after edging out world number one Woods by a single shot at Mission Hills Golf Club, the 24-year-old said: "I still have four tournaments left until the end of the season and I would love to finish 2013 strongly and get a little bit of momentum going into next season.

"But I think as I showed out there, I'm hitting the ball well. Tee to green, the game was very solid, and if I can just get the putter going a little bit more and get a few more putts to drop, then in these last four tournaments, I can hope to contend and maybe pick up a win or two."

McIlroy is currently ranked 62nd in the European Tour's Race to Dubai and must move inside the top 60 with good results at the HSBC Champions and Turkish Airlines Open to qualify for the season-ending DP World Tour Championship next month.
