    Garcia
    Spieth
    Keegan
    Garcia def. Spieth
    Sergio Garcia was made for this format, and his game has been on the upswing this season.
    Chris
    Dunham
    Simpson
    Schwartzel
    Kuchar
    Matsuyama
    Schwartzel def. Matsuyama
    After all the near-miss putts at Riviera, I think Schwartzel is due some good fortune this week.
    Bryan
    Mullen
    Horschel
    Garcia
    Donald
    Bradley

    Garcia def. Donald
    Garcia, who got to the final four in 2010 at Dove Mountain, has appeared to be on form during his last several events.
    Ryan
    Smithson
    Snedeker
    McIlroy
    Kuchar
    Z. Johnson
    Z. Johnson def. McIlroy
    Zach's too hot and too good to get ousted early again at Dove Mountain. This is his year to finally get a WGC title.
    Mike
    McAllister
    DeLaet
    Poulter
    Spieth
    Bradley
    Poulter def. Bradley
    Don't care what kind of form he's showing at the moment, Poulter is tough to pick against in any match play competition.

    Day
    McIlroy
    Kuchar
    Bradley
    Bradley def. Day
    His Accenture record isn't great but Bradley has the mentality and he's on his game, finishing 20th or better in five of last six starts.
    D.J.
    Piehowski
    Simpson
    Kuchar
    English
    D. Johnson
    D. Johnson def. Simpson
    When he's putting well, Dustin is almost impossible to beat. Have you been watching the past two weeks? He's putting well.
    Sean
    Martin
    Simpson
    Kuchar
    Garcia
    Matsuyama
    Siimpson def. Kuchar
    Simpson's consistency (five top-25s in six starts this season) is perfect for match play. He was a quarterfinalist last year.
    Bill
    Cooney
    DeLaet
    Kuchar
    English
    Bradley
    Bradley def. English
    Match play picks are the ultimate guessing game. I'm taking Bradley based on his solid play of late and his bulldog mentality.
    Rob
    Bolton
    Day
    Spieth
    McIlroy
    D. Johnson
    McIlroy def. Spieth
    Riding theory that winner emerges from toughest bracket. Doesn’t hurt that top-seeded McIlroy opens against recently injured Boo Weekley.
    Brian
    Wacker
    Stricker
    McIlroy
    Kuchar
    Bradley
    McIlroy def. Bradley
    McIlroy has been in good form with a runner-up and a T9 in both his European Tour starts this season. He has also proven to be tough to beat in match play.
    John
    Swantek
    DeLaet
    Poulter
    Donald
    D. Johnson
    Poulter def. D. Johnson
    The 2010 Match Play king channels just enough Ryder Cup magic - and holes just enough clutch putts -  to hold off the upward trending DJ.

    Day
    McIlroy
    Kuchar
    Bradley
    Bradley def. McIlroy
    Keegan's mental toughness will go a long way in this format.
