They'll look silly in a moment, but time to make 63 predictions for the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. It's a shame the tour players don't enjoy this format as much as the fans and media seem to.
Gary Player Bracket
Justin Rose over Scott Piercy - Can't be super confident here, as Rose is coming off injuries.
Ernie Els over Stephen Gallacher - Els rarely has an early exit here, can be trusted to move on.
Scott Stallings over Jason Dufner - Something isn't right with The Duff thus far in the new season.
Matteo Manassero over Luke Donald - Donald has turned into the Where's Waldo of professional golf; I doubt he has a deep run.
Matt Kuchar over Bernd Wiesberger - If you putted like Kuchar, you'd be unflappable, too. Perfect spot.
Ryan Moore over Joost Luiten - A vote to match-play pedigree.
Jorden Spieth over Pablo Larrazabal - Too hot to pick against.
Thomas Bjorn over Francesco Molinari - Knows how to get best of his modest ability, won't beat himself.
Round 2 Winners: Els, Stallings, Kuchar, Spieth
Bracket Final: Kuchar over Els
Sam Snead Bracket
Richard Sterne over Zach Johnson - ZJ hasn't been effective in recent trips here.
Hunter Mahan over Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano - Mahan might turn into US's version of Ian Poulter.
Gary Woodland over Graeme McDowell - Look for a full 18 holes here, perhaps extras.
Martin Kaymer over Hideki Matsuyama - Flip your coin, pick your enigma.
Dustin Johnson over Peter Hanson - Tricky call with Johnson; hot in stroke play, mediocre in this event.
Kevin Streelman over Victor Dubuisson - Two Accenture debuts, hard to make a confident pick.
Bubba Watson over Mikko Ilonen - But here's where the story ends.
Keegan Bradley over Jonas Blixt - It should be over early.
Round 2 Winners: Mahan, Woodland, D Johnson, Bradley
Bracket Final: Mahan over Bradley
Bobby Jones Bracket
Henrik Stenson over Kiradech Aphibarnrat - Stenson not in form, but this isn't the spot to call upset.
Louis Oosthuizen over Nick Watney - What happened to the superstar-in-training Watney used to be?
David Lynn over Brandt Snedeker - Leaky ball striking and erratic putting have Snedeker in a four-event funk.
Webb Simpson over Thongchai Jaidee - Simpson looks primed for a run at Ryder Cup spot.
Jason Day over Thorbjorn Olesen - All Day (one of the slowest players around) is on the short list of favorites.
Jamie Donaldson over Billy Horschel - Pick the world-experienced player over the Accenture rookie.
George Coetzee over Steve Stricker - Your heart goes out to Stricker, who's dealing with some family issues.
Patrick Reed over Graham DeLaet - Those young players, so darn fearless.
Round 2 Winners: Oosthuizen, Simpson, Day, Reed
Bracket Final: Day over Simpson
Ben Hogan Bracket
This looks like the loaded bracket, for what it's worth. Look at these names.
Rory McIlroy over Boo Weekley - Boo is just wacky enough to think he can win, though.
Harris English over Lee Westwood - Westwood out of form, and no one trusts his putter.
Kevin Stadler over Charl Schwartzel - Baby Walrus finally ready for breakout campaign.
Chris Kirk over Jim Furyk - Yes, it's possible to want it too badly, to your detriment.
Sergio Garcia over Marc Leishman - Two bombers who can't always be trusted on the greens.
Miguel Angel Jimenez over Bill Haas - Likely Ryder Cup preview.
Ian Poulter over Ricky Fowler - Could get downright ugly - best match play star in the world against a slumping Fowler.
Jimmy Walker over Branden Grace - Grace is no cakewalk, but Walker's too hot not to win a match.
Round 2 Winners: English, Stadler, Garcia, Poulter
Bracket Final: Poulter over English
Jason Day over Ian Poulter
Hunter Mahan over Matt Kuchar
Champion: Jason Day
