Dubai: Tiger Woods is the best golfer Luke Donald has ever played against and Rory McIlroy is the most talented.

The No.1-ranked Englishman had compared the two players on Wednesday ahead the start of the Dubai World Championship, but he backtracked on his assessment a day later and said on Twitter that he had meant no "disrespect" to Woods.

"A few people aren't understanding what I meant. The word 'talent' and Rory, to me, means a free-flowing swing who makes everything look so easy," Donald tweeted. "TW (Woods) has always been the best at getting the ball in the hole when it mattered the most. That's not just talent that something else, too."
