What are the chances of world No. 1 Rory McIlroy meeting up with No. 2 Tiger Woods in the final of the World Golf Championship Accenture Match Play?

Well, let's just say about as much as a snowstorm in the desert. So, yes, it could happen.

Unlike the snowstorm that cancelled play on Day 1 of the WGC event in Marana, Ariz., Wednesday (only the sixth time snow has affected play in PGA Tour history, according to Golf Channel), it's still unlikely that McIlroy and Woods will meet Sunday in the final.
