The Accenture Match Play Championship starts at the Gallery Golf Club at Dove Mountain (South Course), in Tucson, Arizona tomorrow. Henrik Stenson won last year's Accenture Match Play Championship just after winning the Dubai Desert Classic.

Stenson, who hasn't won since, squeezed out a 2 & 1 victory over 2006 champion Geoff Ogilvy in the final match, claiming his first PGA Tour title after five wins on the European Tour.

Tiger Woods will make his second U.S. start this season, and third overall, in a tournament he won in 2003 and '04. Woods has won his first two starts of the year, at the Buick Invitational and Dubai Desert Classic.

There are always upsets look at last year, Woods was knocked out by Tim Herron in the third round. Holding the No. 1 seed in the Bobby Jones Bracket this season, Woods drew FBR Open winner J.B. Holmes in the first round.

The brackets:

Phil Mickelson (Gary Player Bracket), Steve Stricker (Sam Snead Bracket) and Ernie Els (Ben Hogan Bracket) received the other No. 1 seeds as the next three players behind Woods in last week's world rankings.

Adam Scott (Hogan), Justin Rose (Player), Jim Furyk (Snead) and Rory Sabbatini (Jones) are the No. 2 seeds.
