Big payday for Tiger Woods
By QMI Agency
Tiger Woods is expected to get a $2 million appearance fee for his head-to-head exhibition matchup with Rory McIlroy Monday in China.
That's twice as much as McIlroy, the top-ranked player in the world, will get for playing in the 18-hole event at Lake Jinsha International Golf Club. McIlroy will receive a reported $1 million for taking part.
"We're going to try and put on a good show, shoot a low round and have a little bit of fun," Woods said.
McIlroy is coming off a second-place showing at the BMW Masters in Shanghai while Woods was fourth in the CIMB Classic in Malaysia.
