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.

Jul 28 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There was no Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth or Tiger Woods contending with Bernhard Langer at the Senior British Open at Royal Porthcawl Golf Club, but the 56-year-old played like a young man amongst seniors en route to a 13-shot win. Per Justin Ray of the Golf Channel, the win was the largest in Champions Tour history. On Sunday, Langer punctuated his performance with a five-under 67 to finish 18 under par for the tournament. When S ...

Winners and Losers of the Week in Golf

Jul 27 2014 5:39pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The week after a PGA Tour major can be a dull affair and isn't usually filled with high drama. Fortunately, these past seven days bucked that trend.  While many of the PGA Tour's best were still recovering from jet lag, Tim Clark and Jim Furyk were battling it out at Royal Montreal.  Across the pond, Bernhard Langer dominated the field at the Senior British Open. Elsewhere, the United States team bowed out of the inaugural International Crown competition.  So, a lot went on ...

Bernhard Langer wins Senior Open Championship by record 13 shots, joins Ryder Cup discussion

Jul 27 2014 2:04pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Bernhard Langer just won a Senior major in a dominating fashion you rarely ever see in golf, at any level. If Rory McIlroy's multi-shot win last Sunday felt like a cruise to the Open Championship, what should we call Bernhard Langer's dominance one week later at the Senior Open? This was Tiger Woods at Pebble Beach in 2000 dominant, where a player overwhelms a field and course and is simply playin ...

Jul 25 2014 11:07pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When it comes to balancing long-term relationships and careers, professional men's tennis players seem to do a better job than their female counterparts. Maria Kirilenko recently announced that she was breaking off her engagement to hockey star Alex Ovechkin. She became the third high-profile professional woman's tennis player in the past two years to see marriage plans derailed. Earlier this year Rory McIlroy called off his engagement to Caroline ...

Being the best

Jul 23 2014 10:00pm CDT | Source: Spectator Magazine

This time last year, England’s cricketers were 2-0 up against Australia, two thirds of the way towards their third consecutive series victory in sport’s longest-established international contest. Not quite top of the world, they were nevertheless a good team in the prime of life. The winter before, they had beaten India on their dusty pitches, quite an achievement. What a falling-off there has been. Since the turn of the year, England have lost Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott and Kevin P ...

Finally, the International Golf Federation let the real cat out of the bag on who will be able to compete in the 2016 Olympics. They did it during British Open week, figuring it would get buried in other headlines. Now comes the revelation that, no matter how far up a player is in the rankings, only the top four from any country can compete, if there are more than four in the top 15. If Australia had four in the top ...

Clark: Give Nike Golf credit where credit is due

Jul 23 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: GolfWRX

Remember all the criticism hurled at Rory McIlroy when he decided to switch to Nike Golf equipment? It’s quieter now, isn’t it? The meteoric rise of Nike Golf has been nothing short of amazing considering that not very long ago, Nike Golf was the new kid on the block in the golf club business; a young company in a very old, well-developed industry. The success of Tiger Woods — and more recently McIlroy and Mi ...
