The WGC Accenture Match Play begins on Wednesday morning February 19 and has a start time of 9:25 am (ET). The event will take place at Dove Mountain in Marana, Arizona. Last year it was Matt Kuchar that took the title and this year he comes in with +1150 odds to repeat. Odds for the event and 1st round matchups (with odds) are listed below.  

You can catch the event on TV at noon ET through 6 p.m. Wednesday on the Golf Channel. Thursday, it's 2-6 p.m. on the Golf Channel. Saturday, it's noon-2 p.m. on the Golf Channel and 2-6 p.m. on CBS. Sunday's coverage begins from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on the Golf Channel and then on CBS from 2-6 p.m.

The WGC- Accenture Match Play is designed just like the NCAA Tournament, with the top 64 players in the nation being seeded 1-64 according to their world rankings, and then they square off in head to head play with the winner moving on to the next round. The winner earns 500 FedEx Cup points, making it a big deal. 

Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson will not be competing in the event, which will make Henrik Stenson, who won this event back in 2007, the number 1 overall seed. The tournament has 4 brackets and Henrick Stenson is the top seed in the Bobby Jones bracket, while Justin Rose is the top seed in the Gary Player bracket, Rory McIlroy the Ben Hogan bracket and Zach Johnson the Sam Snead bracket.
