Dufner watch-Accenture Match Play Championship, Updated
Jason in true AU fashion is staging dramtic late comebacks and is going through the field in the Accenture Match Play Championship. In the first round he was 3 down with 3 holes to play. He birdied 16 and 17 and won 18 with a par. On the first whole of overtime…sudden death, he made a solid par to win the match against Scott Stallings.
In the second match he was again 2 down late in the match. He won 15 after his opponent Manteo Manassero drove into the desert then reeled off two birdies on 16 and 17.
He then forced a 3 rd down and Manteo tried a long field goal and Jason ran it back for a TD….oh wait wrong sport. Anyway, he pulled out a big win at the end once again.
In the round of 16 he faces Ernie Els and I think he will handle the Big Easy quite easily. The winner of this event wins a cool 1.3 mil. That should be enough to keep him in Skoal for a while.
I will update this post after the round of 16.
Update: Jason is going to have to come back once again. He is 2 down to Els with 6 holse to play. For those of you not familiar with match play, you score by winning a hole not total strokes.
