Will Woods or a top seed win it this year? Or will a surpise (like Kevin Sutherland in 2002) win? Other than the majors, this is the tournament I look most forward to every year. What can I say, I'm a sucker for match play!

I, too, am really excited about this week. I honestly think this is Adam Scott's time. He took Tiger to the brink last year and if he gets to Tiger again this year he will have likely gone through Sergio (my second fave pro) and Lefty already. He'll be seasoned and primed for the "upset."

Speaking of the Match Play Championship, I was hoping someone here would have the time and gumption to put together a quick tourney pool, a la college basketball's March Madness. You know, we all pick a winner, starting with 64 and going forward, tally up points to see who wins kind of thing? I've got a baby due in less that a week so I don't have much time, but I'd love to participate if someone could throw it together in the next day and a half.

I think I can take care of it . . . I'll even throw in a prize for the winner, provided we get 10 or more entries. Simple format, one correct pick=1 point, who ever has the most points at the end wins.

Who ever wants to participate, please e-mail me a list of who you think will win from this bracket in the following format:
Round 1: Pick 1 - Singh (or whoever you pick) Pick 2 - Haas . . . Pick 32 - Maruyama Round 2: Pick 1 Pick 2 . . . Pick 16 Round 3 Pick 1 Pick 2 . . . Pick 8 And so on and so forth.

Please e-mail it here:

t_madefan@yahoo.com and hopefully we can get something together last minute. Entries will be closed Thursday morning at 8:00am EST. Thanks

I've created a JPEG of the brackets. You can find it right here .

No doubt we'll use the image in some Sand Trap articles this week.

More brackets can be found at ESPN .

You're the man! That's awesome, Erik. Good job.

I filled out my tournament bracket and sent it off to Kiran.

How ESPN handles the scoring this week will be interesting. I mean, say Tiger dispatches of Price in 14 holes (5 & 4). That leaves people who pick Tiger without 4 holes on which to make birdie! And if your guy's out in the first round, ouch .

Well, The Sand Trap's own Donald MacKenzie has boldly predicted a Mickelson win . Fine reading indeed... especially when Roberts knocks him out in the first round with superb putting and a steady game.

Phil's game the last day of Pebble - with wind and rain - wasn't so hot, after all, and La Costa sure as heck ain't Phoenix.

I'm not on the Lefty bandwagon either, though I at least have him advancing to the semifinals, where he will promptly be beaten by eventual champion Adam Scott.

I hate the brackets. My two favorite pros will probably match-up in the "Sweet 16." The problem with predicting this tourney is that inevitably someone comes out of nowhere to make a solid run. Great to watch as a fan horrible for a fantasy golf player.

FYI:

They need to move the whole west coast swing to March or April and play hte Florida tournaments now, it'll be better for everyone.

I guess it's also good because it'll give everyone who wants into the matchplay pool till thursday morning to sign up!

That must be you on the ESPN Fantasy message boards, Anxiety. Saw someone today posting with your name. I'm "comicalize" over there. Heh. I filled out my Golf Magazine bracket, too. I love match play.

Yup that's me. Never can have enough forums.

Just knowing that one of the top five will probably not win this (even though Tiger won the last two), I picked KJ Choi. Don't ask me why other than I think he has the game to win a major and he has the temperament to play match play. I will say that it was hard not to pick one of the European Ryder Cuppers since they all seem to be so much better at this than the Americans.
