With the Accenture Match Play Championship under way, how good would it be to see Rory Mcllroy go up against Tiger Woods? Imagine how big the television ratings will be if that happens. Of course both men have their work cut out for them to get to that point. Woods will play Charles Howell III in his first match and McIlroy will play Shane Lowry in his first match. Woods is coming off a win and McIlroy has struggled a little this season while getting used to his new clubs.

Maybe taking 250 million to play the new clubs wasn’t the best of ideas for McIlroy. Only time will tell. Tiger on the other hand looks to be on the comeback trail. This could be the year we see Woods make a move to capture another major. His focus on the golf course seems to be getting back to what the world has grown accustomed to. He looks very determined this season. We will see if he has been distracted by all the press he is getting over his relationship with injured skier Lindsey Vonn, or will he keep that look of hunger in his eye. We will know shortly.

    Hope I’m wrong, but, dream on. Match play of the kind we see at the Accenture is precisely the kind of venue (with its do-or-die mandate) that will expose players with flaky short games. Until I see Tiger string together a few tournaments where his putting is sharp, his short game is tight, and his iron play is clean, I wouldn’t bet on seeing him in the final round against Rory or anyone else at the Accenture–a tournament he used to win fairly often…

      Of course we have to wait for the snow to stop before we see anyone putting. Or they better get out those yellow balls…..
