Tiger Woods will clash with Rory McIlroy, Jason Day and Hideki Matsuyama in a high-stakes, globally televised golf challenge in Japan next month.
The four will go toe-to-toe in an extravaganza featuring special in-match challenges and surprises, with holes assigned increasing monetary value.
The event, called 'The Challenge: Japan Skins' will tee off on Oct.21 at the Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club in Chiba, and will be played under the "skins" format.
The format, designed to encourage aggressive play from start to finish, forces players to win a hole outright to take a "skin", with tied holes resulting in a "push" of the skin to the next hole.
