Rory McIlroy 'fancies his chances' against Tiger Woods

Steve Spurrier ain't got nothing on Rory McIlroy.
The Ol' Ball Coach has long been famed for his ability to get under the skin of his opponents with quotes that burn right off the bulletin board. But McIlroy took it to a whole new level this week when he indicated he'd love to go head-to-head with the still-No.-1 player in the world:

"I would love to face him," McIlroy told the BBC. "Unless his game rapidly improves ... I think anyone in the European team would fancy their chances against him."

Granted, this isn't Stephen Ames, who provoked Tiger before the World Match Play event in 2006 and then got hammered 9-and-8, or Rory Sabbatini, who said in 2007 that Woods was beatable and then proceeded to collapse over the rest of his season. The Tiger Woods of 2010 is hobbled and relatively easy prey.
You'd be hard pressed to find anybody outside of the TW acolytes who would take Woods over McIlroy right now. But Rory had better hope Mr. Woods doesn't get his game back to pre-Escalade levels any time soon. Otherwise, there'll be nothing left on the course but a few wispy Irish curls.
