RANDOM RESULTS AND QUOTES from the second round of the 2009 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.
Tim Clark beat Tiger Woods 4 and 2. NBC announced new layoffs. (Not really.) The quotes:
Q. Where do you go from here?
TIGER WOODS: Go to the airport.
Q. Did you think Tiger was firing on all cylinders today, or is he maybe not quite there yet?
TIM CLARK: Again, I would hate to comment on that. I don’t want to get him angry for the next time I play him, so I’m going to leave that one alone (laughter).

Q. How disappointed are you that Tiger didn’t win?
RORY McILROY: I’m not (laughing).

Q. Do you have much knowledge of your opponent tomorrow?
