DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Tiger Woods won for the first time in two years, and some of the best golfers in the world are relishing the chance to face him again.

Woods won the Chevron World Challenge on Sunday, ending a title drought that began shortly after his personal life imploded.

Rory McIlroy, the U.S. Open champion who has moved up to No. 2 in the world and is playing at this week's Dubai Championship, says "(playing against Tiger) would be a huge experience and a huge learning curve for me just to see how I would handle it."
