All together now

With Match Play drawing straight from the top of the world rankings everyone in the top tiers is in the event with the exception of absentee Sergio Garcia. With an ounce of presumption, here is how the top 17 players should be seeded:

Bobby Jones Bracket
Tiger Woods v. Craig Parry
Adam Scott v. Lucas Glover
David Toms v. Ian Poulter
Henrik Stenson v. Paul Casey
What I'd like to see: Woods v. Stenson in the third round.

Gary Player Bracket
Vijay Singh v. Graeme McDowell
Chris DiMarco v. Mark Calcavecchia
Kenny Perry v. Carl Pettersson
Rory Sabbatini v. Miguel Angel Jimenez
Angel Cabrera v. Peter Lonard
What I'd like to see: Sabbatini v. Tim Clark in the Quarterfinals

Sam Snead Bracket
Retief Goosen v. Paul Broadhurst
Jim Furyk v. Zach Johnson
Colin Montgomerie v. Niclas Fasth
Luke Donald v. Richard Green
What I'd like to see: Furyk v. Montgomerie or Paul McGinley in Round 3 followed by Furyk v. Donald or Darren Clarke in the Quarterfinals for some good Ryder Cup action previews.

Ben Hogan Bracket
Ernie Els v. Bernhard Langer
Phil Mickelson v. Charles Howell III
Michael Campbell v. Geoff Ogilvy
David Howell v. Steve Elkington
What I'd like to see: Els v. Mickelson in the Quarterfinals.

Golfer to watch this week: Let's see if Rory Sabbatini can carry some momentum into the Match Play.
