A couple of weeks ago the 2017 Dubai Desert Classic was on a winner; Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods in the field and destined to be paired together.

With Rory out, the question is who to play with Tiger Woods?

Now with McIlroy confirmed OUT with a rib injury, the question is what other top player the European Tour should put with Woods?

The choice for the marquee partner really boils down to four: Open champ Henrik Stenson, Masters champ Danny Willett, longtime foe Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer.

With Henrik arguably being the second biggest name in the field, he may well be placed on the other side of the draw to Woods.  And it's hard to see Garcia being paired with Tiger given their history.  Danny too can be hard to be around on the course betimes, so I don't see that happening.

Given the choice, and he will be, I think Woods will choose Martin Kaymer; pleasant easy going and very likeable.  Somebody like Bernd Wiesberger or Rafa Cabrero Bello would make a super third.

Just my thoughts. Who do you think you Tiger should play with? Follow the draw when released on the European Tour site here.
