Accenture Match Play 2011
Golf Odds and Predictions: WGC Match Play Championship

In my opinion, the most intriguing golf tournament of the season other than the four majors is upon bettors this week with the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship in the Arizona desert.

Accenture Matchplay Preview

64 of the world's top players play a head-to-head knockout over five days in the Accenture Matchplay Championship.

At 7849 yards the Ritz-Carlton is the longest course used on the PGA Tour, a Jack Nicklaus designed track opened in January 2009 cut out of the lush mountainside earth.

The fairways are wide, with the driver prominent, and birdies are usual on a course that has few natural challenges. It is a tournament that favours the player who has experience of matchplay golf, whether in Ryder Cup, President's Cup or World Match Play.

One perhaps should look no further than Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy, who looks to tick all the boxes. ( Read Accenture Match Play 2011 more... )
