McIlroy makes debut as new No. 1; Woods tries to make progress
DORAL, Fla. (AP) ' Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are at Doral to build momentum in different ways.
McIlroy is the new No. 1 in golf after winning the Honda Classic. He is not concerned with how long he can stay there as much as he is winning the Cadillac Championship in his last tournament before Augusta National.
"This is a World Golf Championship, and it's my last event before the Masters," McIlroy said. "I'd love to give myself a chance to win here again this week, and go into that three-week break with a lot of confidence."
Woods is coming off a 62, the lowest final round of his career, hopeful that it's the strongest sign yet that he is close to a full return to form that made him No. 1 longer than anyone.
