Turkish Airlines World Golf Final 2012: Tee times and matches for Tuesday

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will make their debut in the inaugural Turkish Airlines World Golf Final on Tuesday morning.

The Turkish Airlines World Golf Final will get underway early Tuesday morning, with the first match in the four-day competition teeing off at 5:30 a.m. ET. The event is not sanctioned by either the European or PGA Tour, and it will run midweek so as to not overlap with the regularly scheduled tournaments on those tours. It's a blatant cash grab that has attracted the world's best players, including Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. The purse is $5.3 million, with the winner getting $1.5 million and the last-place finisher earning $300,000. Appearance fees have become commonplace for some Middle Eastern events, but this will be the first time this match play event is held.

All eight players in this year's inaugural field are inside the top 30 of the Official World Golf Rankings, with four of the top five in attendance. The first day will feature a 18 holes of medal match play. Here's the schedule for Day 1 at the PGA Sultan Antalya course in Belek:

5:30 a.m. Rory McIlroy vs. Matt Kuchar
5:40 a.m. Tiger Woods vs. Charl Schwartzel
5:50 a.m. Hunter Mahan vs. Justin Rose
6 a.m. Lee Westwood vs. Webb Simpson
