WGC-Accenture Match Play 2014: Preview and Prediction at Dove Mountain
Ted S. Warren/Associated Press
Matt Kuhar was a very worthy champion in 2013.

It is an event designed to feature the best 64 players in the world, who are seeded like the NCAA men's basketball tournament, and then face off in a rare match-play tournament.

It's a style of golf that encourages risk/reward play, and the Golf Club at Dove Mountain is a course that sets up well for that style.

It's called the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, one of only a handful of tournaments to be given the WGC title.

The winner earns 500 FedEx Cup points, making it a big deal.

The format allows for unpredictability, things like the game's biggest stars being eliminated on the first day, leaving the tour's lesser lights to carry the tournament the rest of the week.

It ought to be a entertaining week, starting Wednesday morning.
