At #2 Phil Mickelson is the highest remaining seed left at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Tiger Woods was thoroughly dispatched by Tim Clark 4 and 2. Clark was 6 under through his required 15 holes and took control on the back nine. Woods' drive on 15 went OB off the cart path ending any hope of a miracle comeback. The remaining #1 today, Vijay Singh, was sent home by Luke Donald on the 19th hole of their match. Peter Hanson at #15 was the lowest seed remaining, having beaten Stephen Ames 2 and 1.
All that sets up tomorrow's Day #3 action with the following match-ups and Average Golfer predictions. Round #2 full field final scores. I was a blase 8-8 on Day #2 picks making me 24-24 overall.
ROUND #3 PICKS
Clark, 8 vs McIlroy, 4 - Clark was flawless. Like him in a close one.
Ogilvy, 2 vs Villegas, 3 - Camilo romped in his first two. I like Ogilvy.
Donald, 9 vs Els, 4 - Els here, although Luke wouldn't surprise.
Mickelson, 2 vs Cink, 6 - Cink extended both matches. Phil wins.
Poulter, 8 vs O'Hair, 12 - O'Hair's tricky. Poulter here.
Hanson, 15 vs Casey, 6 - Keep the 15 dream alive. Hanson.
Fisher, 9 vs Furyk, 4 - Furyk, of course.
Leonard, 7 vs Wilson, 11 - Leonard too much.
Maybe as the field narrows I can increase my pick percentage. Maybe not. Now we'll see how the weekend shapes up. You know the networks are pulling for Phil and.........probably Furyk for the final.
