NOTES
It`s the PGA Tour`s version of March Madness in February. This is the only match-play event on the PGA Tour schedule, and pits the top-64 ranked players in the world rankings following last week`s Northern Trust Open at Riviera. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson both skipped this week. Steve Stricker is in the field and will be the No. 1 overall seed. He won this title in 2001. Last year, Geoff Ogilvy won his second WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship when he beat Paul Casey in the final. This event starts Wednesday with the first round, followed by the second round on Thursday and the third round on Friday. Both the quarterfinals and semifinals are scheduled for Saturday, with a 36-hole final and 18-hole consolation match on tap for Sunday. The Golf Channel has the first three rounds and early coverage on both Saturday and Sunday. CBS takes over the important stuff over the weekend. Next week on the PGA Tour is the Phoenix Open, won last year by Kenny Perry. The European Tour takes off a week and during the first week of March it will be the Malaysian Open, which Anthony Kang captured in 2009.
