World number two Tiger Woods swept past Rory McIlroy by six strokes to reach the semifinals of the World Golf Final.
Woods was always ahead in the Group One tussle and ended up shooting a 7-under-par 64 against McIlroy’s 70 to set up a meeting with England's Justin Rose at the Antalya Golf Club.
Rose blitzed his way to a course record 62 to defeat US Open champion Webb Simpson (67) in the matchplay event.
Charl Schwartzel (63) made it three wins from three Group One matches by knocking out American Matt Kuchar (65).
McIlroy had lost his opening two games and began horribly against Woods by finding water off the opening tee.
“I really hit it good out there,” Woods said. “I missed a couple of putts so it could have been a really low number.”
