Top seeds fall in Match Play Championship golf

Feb 23 2013, 3:27am CST | by

Washington, Feb 23 (IANS) Bubba Watson came out the only survivor as other top 10 seeds fell in the second round of the Match Play Championship, following World No.1 Rory McIlroy and 14-time major champion Tiger Woods' exit.

Washington, Feb 23 — Bubba Watson came out the only survivor as other top 10 seeds fell in the second round of the Match Play Championship, following World No.1 Rory McIlroy and 14-time major champion Tiger Woods' exit.

The eighth-seeded Watson missed two straight putts that would have won the match before he finally put away Jim Furyk in 22 holes Friday. It was the first time since the World Golf Championship began in 1999 that only one top 10 seed was left after two rounds, reports Xinhua.

Luke Donald, the No.3 seed, suffered his worst loss in this event, beaten 7 and 6 by Scott Piercy, fourth-seeded Louis Oosthuizen never led against Robert Garrigus and Justin Rose, the No.5 seed, lost to Nicolas Colsaerts 4 and 2.

Of the 16 players remaining, the Americans and Europeans each have seven players still alive.

Rory McIlroy And Britney Spears Star In Brilliant ‘Andy Murray: The Movie’ Sketch

Oct 20 2014 5:01am CDT | Source: balls

Lee Westwood leads Euro Twitter attack on U.S. Ryder Cup task force

Oct 14 2014 1:35pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Lee Westwood derides the U.S. Ryder Cup task force with an amusing Twitter blast at the PGA of America’s desperate ploy for winning at Hazletine in 2016. Lee Westwood has zero major championships, but winning seven Ryder Cup trophies in nine tries affords the British ex-pat a platform from which to scoff at the Americans’ latest attempt -- via a high-profile blue ribbon panel -- to wrest the cup from the Europeans. Westwood, along with Euro teammate Ian Poulter, w ...

Oct 13 2014 3:54pm CDT | Source: GolfWRX

On the surface, it doesn’t make much sense. Why would Oakley — a brand beloved by surfers, snowboarders, skiers, skaters and otherwise “cool” people — want to be a golf brand? Doesn’t it know that golfers are notoriously uncool, and that for every Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy there are 50 Tour players who make Chris Kirk seem exciting? GolfWRX regulars might have noticed that we’ve been learning a lot about the Southern-California based company lately. Wh ...
