MANILA, Philippines – Talk of the Masters being a battle between Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy is “naïve,” according to top-ranked golfer Lee Westwood.

The statement comes as mediamen begin calling the Augusta National on April 5 to 8 as a two-man game in a bid to build up the rivalry between Woods and McIlroy.

Westwood feels he, along with England’s Luke Donald, are among a large group of players who have a chance of sliding into the winner’s green jacket on Sunday. Mornings @ ANC, April 4, 2012
