Steve Stricker, Dustin Johnson, Vijay Singh, Padraig Harrington, Kenny Perry and Anthony Kim are just some of the big names that won’t be advancing past the first round at this weeks Accenture Match Play Championship. Among those responsible for the upsets, Matt Kuchar, Jeev Milkha Singh and Ross McGowan. The Bobby Jones Bracket was hardest hit by the upset bug losing favorites Stricker, Harrington, Kim and Angel Cabrera. The other brackets stayed mainly intact, but upsets are just part of the game and they’ve gotta happen to someone.
Fantasy Impact: Everyone’s Rosters stayed fairly even after the first round with the majority of the teams losing two of their five starters in this round. The only exceptions to this are The Beast and Jesse. The Beast lost his 3 top players and he’s left with just Adam Scott and Nick Watney to get him some points. He’s gonna need them to go far if he doesn’t want to find himself in quite the hole after the first two tournaments. Jesse on the other hand is sitting pretty with 4 of his 5 starters still in tact and has to be considered a favorite with 4 strong players left vying for the win.
