Accenture Match Play Championship History
As one of three events in the World Golf Championship series Accenture
Match Play presents a unique format for a golf tournament just like the other events in the series do. While the Accenture
Match Play Championship is not really part of the PGA tour, it still brings in some of the best golfers in the world who are
eager to take part in the contest's unique format. After years of being held in Carlsbad, California, the contest has been
moved to Marana, Arizona in recent years, a place where you can find plenty of avid golf fans who are thrilled to have the
chance to see some of the best players in the world compete. Tiger Woods – no surprise here – has been the most

who brought down the title in 2006 and in 2009.

Accenture Match Play Championship Trivia
Do you know that Jeff Maggert won the inaugural tournament back in 1999?
when this one got started, Jeff Maggert was the king of kings at the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California. It didn't
take long for the word to get out that this was a great tournament that brings a unique style of golf to fans, as it makes
golfers go head-to-head in match play instead of the usual method of lowest score takes all. Match play is a completely different
type of golf that makes the best golfers around adjust to their opponent, making it a riveting type of golf that is always
filled with clutch chips, eye-popping drives down the fairway and approach shots that will make you pinch yourself to make
sure you're not daydreaming.
