Marana, Ariz. – If this were the NCAA Tournament one would think the world was ending, but golf's version of March Madness doesn't play by the same rules.
So far at Dove Mountain two of the four top-seeded players have been sent home – Tiger Woods in Round 1 and Phil Mickelson on Thursday – and world No. 1 Lee Westwood is on the ropes and trailing Nick Watney by two holes through 12. Only Martin Kaymer, who is 2 up against Justin Rose through 10 holes, seems likely to make it to the Elite Eight.
As Dickie V. might say, that's golf, baby.
