Top-ranked Spieth, No. 3 McIlroy collide in Abu Dhabi (The Associated Press)
The latest stop for Jordan Spieth on his tour of the golfing world is the Middle East and an eagerly anticipated head to head with Rory McIlroy at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship this week. For some pre-tournament publicity, Spieth and McIlroy were among those taking part in a ”Rider Cup” challenge that included riding motorized golf scooters – so-called GolfBoards – along a fairway on a local course in the gulf emirate. ”It was quite competitive,” McIlroy said with a smile.
