Tiger Woods believes that he and world number one Rory McIlroy will go head to head many times in the future.

Tiger Woods has claimed that he is looking forward to going up against Rory McIlroy for years to come.

The American pro, who edged out the Irish world number one to reach the semi-finals of the World Golf Final earlier this month, believes that the duo will have "many battles" in the future.

"We've all seen how talented Rory is," said Woods. "It'll be fun to battle him for the next decade or so and hopefully we'll have many battles to come."

The two go head to head in an 18-hole medal match play tournament at Jinsha Lake Golf Club in Zhengzhou next weekend.
