Alert: WGC Starts Today!
PGA Tournaments usually start on Thursday.  This Week WGC Starts on Wednesday.
It's a special Match Play Format. So Bets need to be in by Tuesday Night.
Coverage Begins This Morning
Golf Channel 9 AM (PST)

About Match Play:
The good news is - Each Hole is only worth 1 Point. 
So it doesn't matter if you shoot 3 Over on a Hole you lose the Hole by 1.  
Scores are Up, Down or AS. If you win 3 out of 5 Holes you are 3 Up.
If you split 6 Holes 3 -3 you are AS or All Square - Tied. 
Since Each Hole is only worth 1, If you are 3 up with 2 Holes  to Pay 
The Match is Over.
The Bad News is - If you lose 1 Round - You Go Home.
The Luck of the draw is real. The best player in the Field 
can have one bad round or get Paired with a Great player 
or someone having 1 good round and be Out.
Just like last week - This Course has Tricky Greens 
that may not always reward a good shot.
This Format also involves more Luck than Usual
So Don't Bet the Farm this Week.


The Weather:
Looks Like a Factor. With Temps in the HIgh 70s and Low 80s
The greens should dry out as the weekend progresses. 
So, Like last week, Luck is a Factor
a Good Approach shot 
could bounce off the green and Puts will run Fast.
10-15 MPH winds with gusts to 20
will play a factor as well.

My Favorites

Pricey Favorites 
Rory McIlroy 12/1
(Could Be Dangerous)
Dustin Johnson 15/1
Hunter Mahan 20/1 
Matt Kuchar 20/1

Bubba Watson 25/1
Graham DeLaet 40/1
Harris English 50/1

Shooters and Putters 
 Jordan Spieth 22/1
Justin Rose 25/1 
Ian Poulter 30/1 
 Steve Stricker 40/1
Jason Dufner 50/1

 Good LongShots  

 Marc Leishman 100/1
Peter Hanson 100/1
Kevin Stadler 100/1

Couple of Tips. 
Last year I bet hard on a lot of Euro stars I knew from watching that Tour. Heads up - the greens are so much faster here they do not usually win. I did make an exception with a few this week. I Like Justin Rose and Picked Mikko Ilonen to upset Bubba Watson in the 1st Round this week. Not because his stats are that great - just because he's hot and Bubba tends to blow it after a win. Otherwise Bubba has the stats to do well.    

The Fairways are Wide - so instead of Using Drive Accuracy I gave the advantage to the bombers like last week and used Drive Distance Stats. The Greens are Undulating - so (GIR) Greens in Regulation or Approach Shots are Key along with Putting. 
Wild Drives Will be Penalized. The Rough is Deep enough to matter 
and the Desert terrain can create some impossible lies if you stray to far off course.

(See Full Stats Below)  

Bomber Scott Piercy at 100-1 has a real chance. 
Other Long Hitters Delaet (Due to win) and Harris English (Playing Hot) 
are Serious Favorites in my mind at 40 and 50-1.  

Speaking of Putting - Steve Stricker is the best in the world. He can read these tough greens better than anyone. His brother just had a successful Liver transplant. So he is playing, Real life trauma like that can be a distraction or make golf seem easy. I like his chances. 

Match play is a different beast- Ian Poulter and Mat Kuchar Excel in these events. 
So watch out for Them.  Jordan Spieth has a good deal of experience in match play too. 
He is a fixture on the leader boards every week. Hope he breaks through for his second win this week.  Hunter Mahan almost won last year, won in 2012 and is good in the desert. Jason Dufner has been quiet this year - but he can throw darts at those greens - so worth a cover at 50-1.

 Full Stats - Entire Field


Round 1

When players have a short, push in put inside of 3 feet - they are usually conceded by the opponent. They do not have to make the put and just pick up the ball as if they made it.   

"Beware of rattle Snakes" signs everywhere.

Ilonen 2UP Over Bubba Watson!

Illonen runs chips across the gree into bunker edge!
Leaves chip 20 ft short - Watson 2 up 1 to Go Watson Wins

Stricker classiest player on tour, In interview after ward he is asked - Did your brothers liver transplant effect your play. No, my lack of play effected my play. Every time someone wins - they hold up the Wife and Baby to show how family oriented they are.
Stricker only plays from time to time - after is family is taken care of first - He is the Real Deal.

That was a Knock Down Drag out Slug Fest! Reminded me of a Sugar Ray Leonard Fight. Larrazabal was almost mistake free and got up and down every time he was in trouble. Spieth hit every clutch put and Approach like a Seasoned Veteran at 20 years old.  
If You have Money on Spieth and Watched that Match - and Still Think Golf is Boring - You Don't Have a Pulse!

Round 2

 Some Great Matches Today! Rory vs English, Day vs Horschel.
Several Europeans have fared well in round one. 
We'll see if they can stay the course.
Schwartzel, Rose and Hansen are Likely to Advance.  
I Like Blixt to Possibly Upset Give Bubba.

Here are Today's Matchups
With Full Stats
and Predictions

Spieth Aint Playin! 
The concern for Jordan playing the Grisly old veteran Bjorn - was Bjorn playing head games. 
Well...if he is.. Jordan (at 20) has a few of his own. After Jordan hit the lip in the bunker with his 3rd shot - Bjorn had a 25 foot put to win the hole. He missed by 2 feet. Spieth flipped Bjorn's ball backwards toward him on the way to the bunker. He then proceeded to hole the shot out of the Bunker to stay 1UP THRU 3.

All Stats are Prior to Tourney

Kuchar Calls Spieth a 12 Year Old
Whether it was said in fun or not - it deserves and answer on the Course. 
In a pregame interview Kuchar said he was playing a 12 year old and would say "Good put Jordan" when he made one. He also predicted he would teach him a few things. 
Spieth is Longer off the Tee and his Putting stats are twice as good as Kuchar's.
I am reminded of the Pink Floyd song; "Hey Kuchar - leave that Kid Alone." He'll wish he had by end of day.  

Update: Kuchar Got Schooled!
Spieth handed him his ass UP 3 at one point. It got close at 1 Up for 5 or 6 holes - but Spieth made another clutch 12 Foot Put to send the tall bald man packing on 17. "Hey Grandpa - play with someone your own age! Maybe the Senior Tour? Spieth 2 Up Final!
Spieth Play Golg Hall of Famer Ernie Els Tomorrow. Ifhe wins - he plays the winner of Mcdowell - Dubuisson. 

Europe Please!
The European stars have excelled so far. I do need a favor though. 
Remember when Bubba went to France and was a total ass - complaining about everything thing after he Missed the Cut: http://www.pga.com/news/european-tour/bubba-watson-misses-cut-alstom-french-open-blames-distracting-french-fans  Victor Dubuisson - Please take out this Ego-maniacal Country Bunkin!

Also, After Watching Privileged Snob - Web Simpson - wish a Charity Sponsored Spectator a good Night in Jail - I would love to see Oosthuizen have Simpson removed from this competition. 

Sent them Both Packing!
Ooosthuizen and Dubuisson Advance.
Watson and Simpson Gone!

Should be Another Day of High Drama in the Desert

The New Sergio
Lets Fowler Pick up a 20 footer as repayment for taking extra time on a previous hole.
I guess Sergio was delayed by a Bee or something.  Anyway, I like the gesture and will probably help him in the match.

Update: Nope! Lost by the stroke he gave away. Fowler 1 UP Final

Update: Sergio explained his decision and lack of regret after the Match. Golf Channel commentators John Cook and Peter Jacobson didn't get it - neither did perennial jack ass Nick Faldo. Randle Chambli did understand and praised Garcia. 

It was simple. Fowler had a birdie put. Sergio felt like he was freezing the kicker - by delaying Fowler from making his put. The delay wasn't Garcia's fault, a swarm of Bees had surrounded his ball and delayed an officials ruling. But still, He felt he was doing the right thing and that made him feel good and not regret it afterward. Sergio has had some controversy with his behavior in the past. He has a new love in his life and his trying to be a better person. Good for Sergio. Anyone who doesn't get that needs a morality check. 

He was 2 Up when he let Fowler pick up his ball. He went 3 Up on the next hole. So, a 4 stroke let down - not a fair play gesture - cost him the match. Not a bad thing for kids to see either, when role models are few and far between.

Today's Matchups

Spieth vs Els 
Jordan was 1 year old when Els won his 1st Major. If this were stroke play - Spieth would be 13 Under.  Els would have missed the cut. But none of that matters today. It's Mano Y Mano.

Spieth 3 DN 4 Holes to Go!
Els has mised fairways and greens - but has been near perfect form the bunkers and putting on the green. Spieth must win one of the next two hole to stay alive.

15th Sort Drivable Par 4

Spieth Can Not Lose this Hole or it's Over!
Els Tee shot - right of hole in short spotty rough - plenty of green to work with
Spieth Tee Shot - front center - just short of green.  
Ernie chips to 10 feet
Spieth to inside 3 feet. (Conceded for Par)
Ernie Put form 10 feet - going left - slows - rolls in!

16th 246 Yd Par 3
Spieth Must Win This Hole or it's Over!
Spieth - Cooks It! Past Green - bounces off bleachers. 
LOOKS DIM FOR SPIETH - but has a chance - only if Ernie blows ho bunker shot - Els has been perfect from the bunkers so far? 
Spieth takes relief from thefnece in front of the corporate boxes. 
Spieth Chip - rolls past inside 10 feet.
Ernie - chip from other side of green - rolls past 10 feet.
If Ernie makes it - it's over - Hasn't missed from inside 10 feet most of the day. 
He Must Miss and Spieth Must Make his Put to continue?
OMG! The Humanity! LOL - they have to measure to see who puts first. - Even - Flipping Coin
Spieth wins the toss - lining it up. Jordan Must Make this or It's Over!
Jordan Put from 10 Feet? 
Put heading for the cup - Lips Out! It's Over!
Els Wins 4 UP

In Jordan's defense - this is why match play is so hard. Look at any players scorecard in a normal stroke play tournament - No one ever shoots 4 great rounds in a row. Spieth shot 3 Ernie shot 1 - Ernie advances. Luck of the Draw

I will stay on Jordan. 
Hopefully he'll take a week off.I can't lie - Feel like I got kicked in my stomach right now.
When I predicted he would win within 3 weeks - I never even looked at the venues. Let's see - 2 nightmare coastal courses - Torre Pines and Riviera - both worthy of Hosting Majors. And this week - The World Golf Championship Match Play. Brilliant. Learned a lot though - for the resoan I explained above - I will never again bet on Match play. In order to ease my stomach - I just reminded myself that Spieth will probably still win one of the next 2 or 3 Tournaments anyway. When I cash that ticket - I won't care about today. 

Els is a Good Man
