The Accenture Match Play Championship (golf's prelude to the NCAA March Madness) begins play this Wednesday and OttawaGolfBlog.com's good friend Séamus Maher is running another of his great golf pools. Real simple right all you have to do is select the winners in all of the 64 matches. Pretty easy right, not so fast this is one of the hardest pools to predict with so many upsets especially the first day. So much like March Madness in basketball you have to be really careful and knowledgeable when it comes to your picks. Do your PGA Tour homework, then fill out your bracket and enjoy the action. Who will you take the easy picks or the underdogs?
There will be 3 payouts of 50%; 30% and 20%. All the pool details are at:
