Some Match Play at Last!

We can talk about the tournament more in the next post. I just want to get you up to speed on the WGC-Accenture Match Play for today.

First, here's the official PDF of all the brackets. You can't tell your Players from your Sneads (or Hogans or Joneses, for that matter) without a bracket.

And here's the tournament page with links to previews of all the brackets. If you heard Morning Drive on Monday, you've already got a heads-up on the expectations for most of these players. Not that you'll remember it all, of course, but that's why you've got this link!

The general line of thinking is that the Gary Player bracket (with Rory McIlroy) is going to be the toughest because it's stacked with several players like Sergio, Poulter, and the like who are really good at match play. And the Sam Snead bracket (headed by Lee Westwood) will supposedly be the easiest because so many of the players aren't known for match play prowess -- for example, Ryo Ishikawa and Webb Simpson.

Martin Kaymer heads the Ben Hogan bracket and Luke Donald, the #1 overall seed, heads the Bobby Jones bracket.

And in case you're wondering, Tiger's in the Snead bracket. That may be a blessing or a curse. After all, upsets are the rule rather than the exception in match play, so I expect the brackets will get busted up pretty quick.

Overall, it looks like the most fun match on Day 1 will be in the Hogan bracket -- Ben Crane VS Bubba Watson. Two Golf Boys stranded in the desert, with no microphones in sight... Smiley Faces
