BELEK, Turkey -- Justin Rose beat Tiger Woods by one stroke Thursday to set up a World Golf Final against Ryder Cup teammate Lee Westwood.

Rose holed a sand wedge shot for an eagle at the par-4 14th, part of a round of 69 to beat Woods' 1-under 70.

Westwood set a new course record with a 10-under 61 to beat South Africa's Charl Schwartzel by six shots. Westwood had two eagles and eight birdies, including a 50-footer at the last hole on the Sultan Course at the Antalya Club.

The two Englishmen will meet Friday, with a $1.5 million check for the winner and $1 million for the runner-up.

Woods beat Rory McIlroy by six strokes Thursday in their first head-to-head match in group play to gain the semifinals versus Rose.

McIlroy, the world's top-ranked player, was eliminated from the $5.2 million exhibition after losing his third consecutive group match.

Woods had shot a 7-under 64 early Thursday to set up the match play against Rose. Earlier, Rose posted a course-record 62 to beat U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson by five shots.

In Schwarzel's earlier match play, the South African shot an 8-under 63 to defeat American Matt Kuchar by two strokes for his third straight win. In the earlier match play, Westwood shot 64 to beat Hunter Mahan by three strokes.
