Watson - Holmes Bombfest on Tap at Accenture World Match Play

Hide the women and children tomorrow, or at least cover their eyes. Bubba Watson and JB Holmes will tee it up together in a quarterfinal match at the WGC-Accenture World Match Play Championship. Watson destroyed two-time winner Geoff Ogilvy, 6 and 4. Holmes beat Jason Day 1 up to set up tomorrow's slugfest. Should be the must see match of the day. On a course playing up to 7,800 yds. both Watson and Holmes are approaching most greens with wedges. Nice advantage on the firm surfaces. Should lead to a whole new mob of amateurs swinging out of their shoes. Fun.

Also tomorrow, Matt Kuchar vs YE Yang. Yang dispatched Graeme McDowell 3 and 2, while Kuchar bested Phil-slayer Rickie Fowler 2 and 1. Miguel Angel Jimenez meets Martin Kaymer in the "opposites attract" match, Jimenez having sent home Ben Crane 7 and 6, almost mirroring the tattooing Crane laid on Rory McIlroy yesterday. Ben apparently had some sort of experience overnight and couldn't channel his inner golfer. Kaymer bested Hunter Mahan 2 and1 with Mahan doing his best to reenact his chili-dipped chip shot from the Ryder Cup on the 17th hole. Finally Luke Donald will meet Ryan Moore in the last quarterfinal. Donald sending the 17 yr. old Manassero home 3 and 2, while Moore outlasted Nick Watney in 19 holes in the only match to go overtime today.      

Love to see The Mechanic send Kaymer home.Other than that, strictly red, white, and blue. Watson's been so smooth, he looks unbeatable. Of course the same could have been said about Ben Crane yesterday. Match play, gotta see it.   

Swing hard, look up,
