Exit Strategy at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship

“This is the kind of week where you kind of unpack but you don't move stuff too far away from your suitcase.”
Brandt Snedeker ran into a buzz saw yesterday in his first match at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, his agent told me today. Snedeker, a No. 12 seed in the Gary Player bracket, was four under after 16 holes and lost to No. 5 seed Lee Westwood 3 and 2.
Still, as you can see from the above quote Westwood wasn’t in a chest-beating mood. Match play is unpredictable.
Case in point: As hot as Westwood was yesterday, he currently finds himself two down to Justin Leonard and is running out of holes.
If you’re not hitting it close to the hole, you better keep your stuff close to the suitcase.
