He has won the tournament twice and finished second over the last four years. From AP-
Geoff Ogilvy has been better than anyone in match play over the last four years.
One of these days, he might find out if that includes Tiger Woods.
Even without the world’s No. 1 player around, Ogilvy finished off a remarkable weekend at Dove Mountain on Sunday with a 4-and-3 victory over Paul Casey to win the Accenture Match Play Championship for the second time in four years.
He played 66 holes on the weekend in 25-under par. He never trailed the final 63 holes of this event, mowing down teenage sensation Rory McIlroy and Stewart Cink on Saturday and never giving Casey a chance in the title match.
Cink won the consolation match against Ross Fisher by holing out from a sand trap on 18. I think that was the shot of the week.
Someone should tell NBC that showing two day old news aka Tiger Woods’ matches from earlier in the week is neither good journalism or a way to boost ratings. One NBC producer said it was the network’s duty to show what Tiger did. Reporting the news long after everyone not living in a cave knows of it is one of the reasons newspapers are dying from the internet era. Does television news and sports want to follow the same example all the way to extinction?
Ogilvy(The 2006 US Open Champion) is a very good golfer, but I’m not ready to crown him #2 in the world.
