Colorful Match Play Gives Way to Mayhem

A man playing a yellow ball and another draped in pink clothing made the Accenture quite a tournament last week. Tim Clark was playing with a new yellow Srixon ball, not sure that will catch on. Ian Poulter claimed the championship in his usual pink attire from his own clothing line. Poulter was strong all week and beat Paul Casey, a fellow Brit, in the finals. Foreign players reigned supreme with the Americans having a very poor showing. It was a week of highs, lows, sun and rain. For a brief period the wind and rain picked up and it resulted in some pretty embarrassing shots. It just goes to show that it can get cold in Arizona and even the best will pay the consequences when they are not prepared.

This week everyone heads two hours north to the Waste Management Open. It is loud, crazy, and packed with college kids and tourists. We will have a full picture review posted Thursday that will give you a little taste of the grounds and some pictures of players bags and equipment.
