Top seeds fall in Match Play Championship golf

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.

2014 FedEx Cup Playoffs: Winners and Losers from the Deutsche Bank Championship

Sep 1 2014 7:11pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Chris Kirk?  Let's be honest. Who knew who this young man was? He turned pro in 2007, won his first tournament in 2011, his second early this year and his third tournament in the Deutsche Bank Championship.  Now he's No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings where Hunter Mahan was a week ago after his win in The Barclays. Mahan shrunk from the top, but Kirk filled the void.  Looking over the entire weekend, there wer ...

Revived Caroline Wozniacki Eyes 2014 US Open Title After Maria Sharapova Upset

Aug 31 2014 7:22pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

NEW YORK — We called her the Woz, a word play on the Wiz, and on a court Caroline Wozniacki certainly looked like a wiz, a winner, even if she didn’t own a Grand Slam. There wasn’t a shot she couldn’t chase down; there wasn’t a ball she couldn’t return. She was No. 1 in the women’s rankings for 67 weeks, and in 2009 she made it to the final of the U.S. Open. A loss to Kim Clijsters seemed only a blip, a hiccup as the tennis people say. The Woz was 19, and ha ...

Popular Dane grinds her way to three-sets win Sara Errani beats Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in three setsSentiment should not intrude on professional judgment in sport but paying customers have no such inhibitions. And there were few in the packed seats on the Arthur Ashe Court here on a sweltering day seven of the US Open who did not celebrate Caroline Wozniackis victory over Maria Sharapova nearly as wildly as the ever-smiling Dane did.It is no ...

Wozniacki advances to U.S. Open quarterfinals

Aug 31 2014 12:52pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

NEW YORK — Caroline Wozniacki trusts her stamina so much that she plans to return to New York in two months to run a marathon. Maria Sharapova, usually the one wearing down opponents in the third set, sure couldn’t keep up on a steamy Sunday at the U.S. Open. Wozniacki won 6-4, 2-6, 6-2 in 2 hours, 37 minutes to get back to her first Grand Slam quarterfinal in more than two years — and get back in the headlin ...

Is Jason Day En Route to a Breakthrough Moment at 2014 FedEx Cup?

Aug 30 2014 6:48pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Jason Day, co-leader in the second leg of the FedEx Cup at the Deutsche Bank Championship, has toyed with golf fans long enough. We have seen him in the lead or close to it on the weekend in so many big events, most notably the majors, only to falter in the end. Will this be the tournament that puts him over the top?  Should he actually go on to win it, he will be the clear favorite to take the FedEx Cup and its whopping $10 m ...

Review: The Golf Club

Aug 30 2014 3:14pm CDT | Source: middle easy

The golfing genre is in a bit of an odd place right now in the video game world. Hot Shots is going the way of the dodo. EA has dropped Tiger Woods from their franchise, and will go with the branding of simply PGA Tour for their next installment (Editor’s note: for the sake of simplicity this review will still refer to the franchise as Tiger Woods’ PGA Tour). Seriously, the biggest golf release in the video game world has been Mario Golf ...

Bradley shares lead at Deutsche Bank at 6-under

Aug 29 2014 3:18pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

NORTON, Mass. — In the final tournament before Ryder Cup teams are set, Keegan Bradley did his best Friday to make an impression in the Deutsche Bank Championship. So did Webb Simpson. Bradley played bogey-free in a gentle breeze at the TPC Boston for a 6-under 65, giving him the lead among early starters in the second FedEx Cup playoff event. Simpson, who also would need to be a captain’s pick, and Jason Day of Australia were ...
