McIlroy ‘more gifted than Tiger’

GOLF: English world No1 Luke Donald has branded Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy “more talented” than 14-time Major winner Tiger Woods. Donald is aiming to fend off US Open champion McIlroy’s late charge to pip him to the European Tour title at the Dubai World Championships, which tees off this morning. “In terms of talent I think Rory has more,” he said. “I think Tiger’s work ethic has always been tremendous and his mindset as well.”
