The golf world is craving a rivalry. The golf world wants what Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus gave it decades ago.
"Rory McIlroy had a wonderful year, and my hat is off to him," Woods posted Monday in a blog entry on his website, TigerWoods.com. "He deserved Player of the Year. Whether we develop a rivalry remains to be seen. Let's just let it play out and see where it takes us . . .
"We'll look at the results the next five or 10 years and see if it becomes a rivalry or not. We'll have to win big events and play each other down the stretch. That hasn't happened yet."
