  • Weve gone with the favorite (Tiger Woods/WGC-Accenture Match Play), the defending champion (Ernie Els/Honda Classic) and the hot hand (Geoff Ogilvy/WGC-CA) and were so far back in the standings if this were a World Baseball Classic outing the game would have been called two innings ago.

  • There's an ageless quality to golfs most high-profile club match between Isleworth and Lake Nona.

  • It wasn't the duel everyone expected to see at Doral, but as senior writer Rex Hoggard writes, Phil Mickelson vs. Nick Watney was a great show to see. And Phil's win may have set up another showdown with you-know-who down the road.

  • Golf Channels Steve Sands has learned that Phil Mickelson was taken to an Urgent Care facility late Saturday.

  • Aaron Baddeley had made a move up the leaderboard on Friday, shooting a second-round 69 following a lackluster 75 on Thursday. The Australian was 1 over through eight holes on Saturday when he was informed by Tour officials hed signed an incorrect scorecard a day earlier and was disqualified.

  • There may be no cut at Doral, but our Cut Line has plenty of material for this edition of March Madness.

  • John Daly has been working on his game and slimming down his body in preparation for his return.

  • The international men of mystery at the WGC-CA are making names for themselves.

  • It's easy to get lost in all the Tiger Woods hoopla and forget about the rest of the best at Doral.

  • History and heart and traditional horses aside, this is not the week to burn a precious Tiger Woods offering. Yes, the world No. 1 owns Doral ' having won three of the last four gatherings on the South Florida pitch ' and hes due, but this is no time for reason.
