The Accenture Match Play Championship is based on a simple premise: bring the best 64 golfers in the world together to compete in the highest prize-money tournament in the world, on the most beautiful and challenging course, with exciting head-to-head match play. Match play is the most traditional form of golf competition; rather than measuring total strokes, match play counts the number of holes won. Paul Runyan, two-time PGA Champion stated, “Stroke Play measures the ability of a golfer, Match Play measures the heart of a competitor.” Put simply, this is spectator golf at its finest.
