McIlroy fared even worse in the medal match-play format, going down by six strokes to Matt Kuchar.
McIlroy and Woods -- ranked No. 1 and No. 2 -- play each other Wednesday in the last of their three group matches, although both could be eliminated by then. Not what the organizers would be hoping for considering they promoted the tournament as "Tiger v. Rory."
"I have talked about this subject with Jack (Nicklaus) several times," Woods said. "It's really neat because he found it fun to be a part of that conversation when he was competing in the (Ben) Hogan days and all the way through (Tom) Watson and into an era when there were guys like Seve (Ballesteros) and all those guys in Europe.
"Jack played the Tour for 25-plus years and had to deal with the question as to who is the best player. If I could do something like that it would be neat, and so far I feel as though I have."
