Taniguchi WDs from Accenture

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. -- Toru Taniguchi has withdrawn from the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship due to a neck injury. Taniguchi, who is No. 64 in the Official World Golf Ranking, has been replaced by Henrik Stenson, who won the Accenture Match Play Championship in 2007. Stenson, the former PLAYERS champ who is ranked 65th in the world, will play world No. 1 Lee  Westwood in his first round match. Westwood is the top seed in the Bobby Jones Bracket. The brackets become final at 7 p.m. on Sunday. Prior to that time, the brackets would be adjusted should a player withdraw. If he  withdraws after 7 p.m., his replacement would be slotted into the original player’s match.
