Tianlang Guan To Face Tiger & Rory in Skills Competition

He's been where most of us will never go.


Just when you thought that golf's "silly season" was dead-and-buried with the early start to the PGA Tour's 2014 season, organizers of another Tiger-vs.-Rory match in China have announced that amateur golf sensation Tianlang Guan will face the two major champs in a "skills challenge" before Tiger and Rory go toe-to-toe.

"The Match" will be place at the Blackstone Course at Mission Hills Haikou, on Hainan Island, on Monday, October 28. In a press release, Guan was quoted as saying:
"It will be nice to see Tiger again because he has been very supportive, such as when we practised together at this year’s Masters. I haven't played with Rory before, but we had a nice chat at the Masters and he also offered me some good advice.

"Both Tiger and Rory achieved a lot of success when they were teenagers, so I always appreciate it whenever they offer advice."
Billed as "The Match At Mission Hills," the Tiger / Rory tilt will be a rematch of their "Duel at Jinsha Lake" last year.
