Well, My Brackets Are Shot...

How about yours? Did you accurately predict the survivors of Friday's round of 16 at the Accenture Match Play?

All of my choices are out. I'm particularly surprised that Matt Kuchar beat Martin Kaymer. It's not that Matt isn't a good player, but he did the deed so easily!

Most of the other matches were no big shock to me. If I was shocked by anything, it's Rory McIlroy. He survived without really playing very well at all.

At any rate, I've picked 4 new finalists:
  • Matt Kuchar over Hunter Mahan
  • Sang-moon Bae over Rory McIlroy
  • Lee Westwood over Martin Laird
  • Mark Wilson over Peter Hanson
At this point I don't know that anybody is really a favorite. All of these players have clearly proven themselves. My reasons for these choices are simple. I think:
  • Kuchar has a better short game than Mahan
  • Bae is playing better than McIlroy
  • Westwood simply smells blood -- not Laird's, but the #1 spot in the OWGR
  • And Wilson is simply defying the odds.
I guess we'll find out soon enough how badly I missed with this batch of predictions.

As for the LPGA event, I have but 4 words for you: THE FUTCHER IS NOW! Smiley Faces

Yes... I know Yani Tseng is closing on her... Smiley Faces
