Now for the 2nd half of the field prognostications for the WGC-Accenture World Match Play Championship. If you're wondering where the 1st half is, here's the link. Let's get to it......
Sergio Garcia, 1 vs Charles Schwartzel, 16 - Sergio wins at least one. Start with this one.
Ian Poulter, 8 vs Jeev Mikha Singh, 9 - I'm going with the lesser of the two Singhs.
Justin Rose, 4 vs Boo Weekley, 13 - Rose plays terribly on US soil. Weekley here.
Adam Scott, 5 vs Sean O'Hair, 12 - May be closer than expected. Scott.
Robert Karlsson, 2 vs Peter Hanson, 15 - Karlsson overrated here, but still wins this one.
Alvaro Quiros, 7 vs Stephen Ames, 10 - Quiros. Don't ask why.
Kenny Perry, 3 vs Matthew Goggin, 14 - For Perry the fairytale continues.
Paul Casey, 6 vs Aaron Baddeley, 11 - Upset here. Badds beats Brit.
Padraig Harrington, 1 vs Pat Perez, 16 - Perez rounding into form, but Paddy's too much.
Robert Allenby, 8 vs Ross Fisher, 9 - Allenby. Could go deep into this event.
Jim Furyk, 4 vs Anders Hansen, 13 - Furyk....tough, gritty, irrepressible.
Martin Kaymer, 5 vs Stuart Appleby, 12 - Should be a good match. Appleby in the upset.
Henrik Stenson, 2 vs Davis Love III, 15 - Want Love, pick Stenson.
Justin Leonard, 7 vs Andres Romero, 10 - Leonard's experience tops the young upstart.
Anthony Kim, 3 vs Wen-Tang Lin, 14 - Kim, if his heads screwed on straight.
K.J. Choi, 6 vs Oliver Wilson, 11 - Choi prevails.
There you have 'em. Free expert picks considering all possibilities and the vagaries of match play. A couple of bad holes and it could be all over for any of them. The broadcasters are praying it's not a Kieldson/Quiros finale on Sunday.
And remember.....it's more exciting to bet with money you can't afford to lose. Better yet, bet with borrowed money. Then it will really feel like a win.
