Faldo Clarke to Vie in Championship


Nick Faldo has drawn Darren Clarke in the first round of the Cisco World Match Play, which begans Thursday at Wentworth, England. Clarke became a father for the second time last week.
Four players enjoy a bye in the opening round: defending champion Colin Montgomerie, Vijay Singh, Ernie Els and Lee Westwood. Montgomerie plays the winner of the Padraig Harrington-American Bob May matchup; Singh will play the winner of Faldo and Clarke; Els will face the Thomas Bjorn-Reteif Goosen winner and Westwood meets the Sergio Garcia-Adam Scott survivor.
