WGC-ACCENTURE MATCH PLAY, ROUND #3 PREDICTIONS

And then there were 16. 3/4 of the field were in airports after today's 2nd round. Match play happens fast until the final day. The Mighty Bobbio was 11 for 16 on day #2. Highlights of his spectacular picks include predicting Stuart Appleby upsetting world #2 Mick Phillerson. He also predicted a dogfight between Steve Stricker and Hunter Mahan. As called, Stricker prevailed after a 20 hole shootout. Perhaps his most astute pick though was Woody "The Woodman" Austin's defeat of Adam Scott in 19 holes. We'd be remiss as well, to not mention the 25 hole donnybrook that saw Bobbio pick Henrik Stenson outlasting Trevor Immelman. There will be no mention of Bobbio's losing picks due to time and space constraints.

Get out you permanent markers. Here's the inside scoop, lowdown for tomorrow's Round #3.....

BOBBY JONES BRACKET

Woods (1) vs Baddeley (5) Might be closer than you think. Still, Woods.
Casey (7) vs Choi (3) Been hot all year. Steady as can be. Choi.

BEN HOGAN BRACKET

Byrd (16) vs Stenson (4) Byrd is lowest seed left. Stenson.
Austin (10) vs Weekly (11) On the Woody roll til' he shows otherwise. Woody.

GARY PLAYER BRACKET

Appleby (8) vs Leonard (13) Appleby beating Phil was it. Leonard.
Pampling (15) vs Singh (3) I said Vijay was done. I was wrong. Vijay.
