Matt Kuchar will defend his title at the 2014 WGC-Accenture Match Play at Dove Mountain this week.

He entered the 2013 WGC-Accenture Match Play as a sixth seed and defeated Hunter Mahan in the final match last year.

Henrik Stenson ranked No. 3 in the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR) is the highest-ranked player in the field this year. Other top-seeded players and their OWGR are Justin Rose (5), Zach Johnson (6) and Rory McIlroy (7) in the remaining three brackets.

Since Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson declined their invitations, No. 65 Richard Sterne, No. 66 Scott Piercy and No. 67 Kiradech Aphibarnrat will get a chance to play for the $1.5 million first-place check.

With a 64-man field, 32 first-round matches will be played on Wednesday. Here is a listing of the 10 best matches to watch.
