MOST of the world’s top golfers will be taking part in the 2012 World Golf Championships – Accenture Match Play Championship which will be broadcast live in Australia on free to air television beginning early Friday morning.
The current top 64 golfers from around the globe minus Phil Mickelson and Paul Casey will be taking to the cactus strewn Ritz Carlton Golf Club in Marana near Tucson in Arizona for what is the first WGC event of the year.
Because of the match play formant and with most of golfing’s elite usually present it has always been a fascinating tournament to watch.
Defending champion and world No.1 Luke Donald heads the list of golfing elite that this year does include Tiger Woods along with other big drawcards such as Rory McIlroy.
Australia has six entrants in the field including two-time winner and once runner-up Geoff Ogilvy, Jason Day, Adam Scott, Aaron Baddeley, John Senden, and Greg Chalmers.
Ogilvy hasn’t shown much this year but could bounce back at any time, Day should have benefited hugely from his recent forays into the Middle East while Scott had a quite good season’s debut on the US PGA Tour last week especially considering he had surgery to remove his tonsils just a couple of weeks ago.
