McIlroy beats Woods in 18-hole exhibition.

HAIKOU -- Rory McIlroy won for the first time this year - even if it was an 18-hole exhibition match against Tiger Woods.

McIlroy made four birdies and an eagle over the final seven holes for a 6-under 67 at Mission Hills, giving him a one-shot win over Woods for the second straight year in China.

A year ago, McIlroy shot a 67 for a one-shot win over Woods at Jinsha Lake.

It was spectacular golf on the back nine at the Blackstone Course as they matched eagles and three birdies. McIlroy caught him with a birdie on the 14th, and pulled ahead when Woods came up short of the 17th green and missed a 5-foot par putt. Woods missed a 20-foot eagle putt on the last hole.
