For the second straight year Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will meet up for a 1-on-1 golf match at the end of the year on October 28th in China. 

This year's event will be streamed live on Back9Network.com and on YouTube to countries outside the US and China.

Ahmad Rashad will call the action as he is Back9Network's newest (and probably most well-known) contributor.

In 2012 Woods and McIlroy also played an event in China but it took place over a thousand miles away from the 2013 version which will be on Mission Hills' Blackstone Course.

According to the Guiness Book of World Records Mission Hills is the largest golf resort in the world.

McIlroy shot a 67 last year to beat Woods in the non-match play event. Golf.com described last year's event in this article:

"Sports Illustrated's Alan Shipnuck traveled to the match after covering the tournament in Shanghai and described the scene on Twitter as "chaotic," with marshals locking arms to hold back thousands of fans and "so many camera clicks it sounds like machine-gun fire."

That sounds absolutely terrifying to me but probably nothing these guys aren't used to.

The match last year was in the middle of the night US time so I'd expect this year's to be the same. I'll get up and watch it and I would advise you doing the same.
