Accenture Match Play 2011 Begins Today,Watch 2011 Accenture Match Play Championship

The Accenture Match Play tournament kicks off today at Dove Mountain in Arizona, as the top 64-golfers in the sport prepare for the first World Golf Championship of the season.Match Play isn’t a traditional tournament.

The golfers are seeded depending on their ranking, and only the top-64 in the sport are invited to participate.One perhaps should look no further than Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy, who looks to tick all the boxes.

McIlroy finished a clear second behind Martin Kaymer in Abu Dhabi, and was leading for the first three rounds in the Dubai Desert Classic only to drop to tenth.The course rewards an accurate iron player like McIlroy, who was fourth in greens hit in Dubai but poor with the putter.

Last year he suffered a second-round exit, whilst the year before he fell to eventual winner Geoff Ogilvy in the quarter-finals.Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were both missing from the field last year. This year, they’re back.

You always possess an amazing field as it is, but is there an added level of excitement knowing Tiger and Phil are both there this time around?McCormick: Of course.

This is such a strong International field, but it’s hosted in the United States where Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have been crowd favorites for nearly 15 years. Two of the largest galleries on Wednesday will be following both of those matches.
