It's great that Ernie Els has changed his mind and entered the Accenture Match Play Championship to be played next week in Arizona. Good for the tournament and good for Ernie who's a great at Match Play maybe he can make up for the beginning of is season with a win.

Els, a three-time major champion and No. 4 in the world ranking, had said all along h would skip the first World Golf Championship of the season and make his U.S. debut at the Honda Classic.

But on Thursday he officially entered. So now Brett Wetterich with a shoulder injury is the only player to have withdrawn. The 64-man brackets will not be set until Monday afternoon, although Els likely would play Jonathan Byrd in the first round.

So now Anthony Kim, is SOL and will miss the tournament unless someone backs out. Tiger Woods, the No. 1 seed, would face FBR Open champion J.B. Holmes in the first round.

The Accenture Match Play Championship begins Wednesday at The Gallery just north of Tucson.
