Woods vs. McIlroy in one-day exhibition in China on Oct. 29

It'll be Red Shirt Sr. versus Red Shirt Jr. in a one-day exhibition in China (there's a communism joke there, no doubt) on Oct. 29.

Tiger Woods will square off against Rory McIlroy in a matchup dubbed the "Duel at Jinsha Lake," organizers of the event announced Wednesday.

The match will be held at Jinsha Lake Golf Club in Zhengzhou, a city of 8.6 million people and capital of Henan province in the northern central part of the country.

Woods will arrive to the match coming off of the finish of the PGA Tour's co-sanctioned CIMB Classic in Malaysia on Oct. 28. McIlroy will already be in China after competing in the BMW Masters - an event he won a year ago when it was an unsanctioned tournament, now a part of the European Tour schedule.

Like with the BMW Masters, no television coverage in this country has been confirmed.
