Tiger Woods has selected David Duval as his partner for the World Cup in December in Argentina, putting together the players who are No. 1 and No. 3 in the world rankings.
Woods could choose his partner because he is No. 1 in the world. The only other time he and Duval were paired in match play, Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke defeated them, 1-up, in a best-ball match on the first day of the Ryder Cup.
Meanwhile, Golf World magazine reported that Woods, who has earned nearly $8.3 million this year, next year will bring in about $54 million a year from endorsement deals he has with 12 companies. It all starts next August, when his new five-year contract with Nike takes effect.
