What to Watch for in the Round of 16

Pool Play was a bracket buster for me. Of my Final Four, only Paul Casey remains alive... and for him to remain alive, he'll have to beat Charl Schwartzel this morning and the winner of the McIlroy / Matsuyama match this afternoon. Casey has been to the finals twice before so I'm hopeful....

However, this is an extremely tough bracket and if I had to pick the most likely player to come out of it, it would be Hideki Matsuyama. He's been on fire this week!

You can get the lowdown on what the day looks like from this post at but here are some things to look for in the remaining brackets:
  • Rickie Fowler VS Louis Oosthuizen: Rickie has been on an unexpected hot streak this week and will have to face the winner of Furyk VS Holmes. Four very different ways of attacking the course in this bracket should make for some interesting matches. Rickie just might pull this one off if his putter stays hot.
  • John Senden VS Hunter Mahan: This could be the toughest of the four brackets. Along with the other two players in this bracket -- Marc Leishman and Gary Woodland -- all of these guys are undefeated. However, I think that Senden is the sleeper here. If he can get past Mahan, who is playing absolutely inspired golf right now, I think he can take the winner of the other match. But in any case I think Senden / Mahan will produce the winner of this bracket.
  • Lee Westwood VS Danny Willett: This is arguably the weakest of the four brackets now. The winner of this match will face the winner of Fleetwood / Grace. Willett and Grace have arguably played the best golf in this bracket, but it's hard to bet against Westwood's experience... especially after he took down Jordan Spieth. He must feel like he can beat the world right now.
If I understand the listings correctly, GC will carry the matches from 3pm ET until 7:30pm ET, and then NBC will pick up the telecast until 11pm ET. Combined with all the other golf, NBA Playoff games and the Kentucky Derby, there's going to be a lot going on this weekend.
