First round losers hit golf balls to kill time


MARANA, Ariz. – One of the curious happenings at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship is what players do when their week ends early.

The answer could be seen on the Dove Mountain practice tee Thursday afternoon as Alvaro Quiros, Eduardo and Francesco Molinari were spotted digging for answers in the desert dirt. All three lost their first-round matches and, as Europeans, don't have anywhere else to go before their next event.

Dove Mountain is, after all, a Ritz course.
