Ogilvy Outplays Casey at Accenture Match Play

Who is the best match play golfer in the world right now? If you answer anyone but Geoff Ogilvy, you're just not paying attention. Ogilvy won his 2nd WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in four years, to go along with a 2nd, by besting Paul Casey 4 and 3 in the 36 hole finale. So dominating was Ogilvy he shot 31 on today's front nine. He converted 70 of 74 putts. He never trailed in the last 62 holes of the tournament, and he carded no bogeys in the last 57. Any questions?

Ogilvy pocketed a cool 1.4 million dollars for his efforts. His world golf ranking improved from 8th to 4th. He has Sergio and Phil hearing footsteps that are getting louder with every passing week. As we head into the meat of the PGA season Ogilvy stands to raise his status to "who knows" levels if he maintains his excellence. Hey, it's not his fault that Tiger got knocked out in the 2nd round.

Til' next,

*Stewart Cink's holed bunker shot on the 18th hole got him 3rd place by besting Ross Fisher, 1 up.


  1. Mr. Cink's last shot was wonderfully insane. That ended up being the match to watch.

  2. As is often the case. The main event was anticlimactic.

  3. it's so nice and unusual to read a golf article, with no mention of Eldrick. good job all you pga players

  4. Well, Woods fell out in the 2nd round, not much to report.
