The world golf number one Rory McIlroy out-duelled the world number two Tiger Woods by one stroke in their 18-hole exhibition match in China.

24 hours after playing different events in Shanghai and Kuala Lumpur at the weekend, McIlroy took an early lead over Woods and went on to compete a bogey-free round of 67 to Woods' 68.

Staff fought a constant battle throughout the day with over-eager fans who often broke through security lines.
