We've got number seed, the major championship leader of all time Jack Nicklaus with 18 of course going against-- you got some patsy to walk over cupcake in round 1 right? Wrong, Phil Mickelson on the 16 seed. -Yeah, absolutely. You can't imagine Jack getting bounced in there. But, you know what? The GolfChannel.com staff may have seeded this and pick the top 16.

Ultimate Match Play Championship: Tiger vs. Seve breakdown
Sixteen of the game’s greatest golfers go head-to-head in week one of GolfChannel.com’s Ultimate Match Play Championship. Here is a breakdown of Bracket 2. Click here to vote in Round 1.winner of that one will take on the winner of number 3 Ben Hogan against number 14 Nick Faldo . Randy, I don't think there's gonna be a whole lot of conversation in this match. -No. You're away and uh-hmm. And I don't see a lot of putts being given either and-- do you? But you can imagine Hogan can't lose a first round match. No way. -No way. Nick Faldo obviously with 6 major championships and terrific player if nothing else, he may gain some of Hogan's respect in this one but I'm not sure there will be a whole lot to be said other than hello and goodbye. And later down the bracket, number 7 Byron Nelson , number 10 Tom Watson. Boy, what a terrific match this is. Tom Watson of course always looked at Byron Nelson as a mentor. He used to go down to Byron's ranch in Texas and not even talk golf for them, just hang out with him and his late wife Louise and just sort of get to know Byron. Tom respects him and I think Watson-- if and when he learns about our Ultimate Match Play Championship would really like the fact that he was able to play against him, with Byron Nelson in the first round. Yeah, absolutely. This is I think one of the more fun first round match is where Faldo and Hogan might not talk much. You could imagine those guys just having a ton of conversation if they were to play together in the primes in this fantasy match-up. -And since we're playing this at Pebble Beach, that maybe a little bit of advantage for Tom Watson as well. So watch out for him against his mentor Byron Nelson there. And the winner of that one takes on maybe this is the best match of the entire first round. Number 2 Tiger Woods against number 15 Seve Ballesteros. How does he get any better than that? -No, you can't imagine a lot of playing from

So like David Williams said yes and he says Bobby Jones did and I've seen lots do it [unk] feel like your arms drop, feel like the body leads, don't overly accelerate the hands and arms. Let's calm the caveman. So up, arm drop, feels like gravity and you can give the ball a good hit there. Good examples that you could watch right now to do that-- Freddie Couples. As a matter of fact, Louis Oosthuizen , Ernie Els , they look effortless, they're not effortless but they look effortless. So wisdom from David Williams for sure. If you feel this in
Ultimate Match Play Champ.: Watson vs Woods in the quarterfinals
Eight of the game’s greatest golfers go head-to-head in the quarterfinals of GolfChannel.com’s Ultimate Match Play Championship. Here is a breakdown of some of the key matchups.the matches are being held. -That's-- Theoretically. -Theoretically, all right. Second match-- Bobby Jones , Sam Snead, who you like? -I think another one-- I think a lot of people are gonna pick Bobby Jones . You know, one of the best if not the best match play player in the history of golf. But, Sam Snead was-- I mean, he was a gamer, was he not? He played Ben Hogan face to face, head to head in the final round three times and beat him all three times. So now I know this is Bobby Jones but Sam Snead seem to win it-- He seems to have that tunnel vision. When he's in a field with 100 people, you know, he was sort of a little more scatter-brained. When he can focus on one person, I think that's where he's at his best. I think Bobby Jones still wins but, you know what? I think it will be way, way closer than people think. -Talk about one that's going to be close. This is about popular vote and in this one, you have Arnold Palmer taking on Ben Hogan , the Hawk. That one's gonna be a tough vote. -Yeah. One of the friendliest people-- the friendliest person ever to play the game versus the least friendly person ever to play the game. Again, you're right. I think-- I think Hogan would win this, but you're right. This is a-- This is a popularity contest, really. So it just depends on, are the voters going to look at it as who do they think will win, or who do they want to win; and there's just no way of knowing who's-- how they're gonna vote. -You know, it's interesting when we came up with this list, you can make an argument that Ben Hogan -- I know Brandel Chamblee does this all the time-- may be the greatest player to ever play the game-- -Sure. -but I'm with you. I think this is going to be an upset special. I think Arnie pulls off the upset. All right. Final match: Tiger Woods , Tom Watson . Watson was the upset special in week one. Does he get it done in week two? -Yeah. A couple of TW's here. Watson beat his idol, Byron Nelson, in the first round, which is a little bit of a surprise. I think Tiger cleans his clock. I think Tiger cleans Tom Watson's clock. It's kinda hard to say that but I think he beats some pretty handling. -Again, in theory, being played at Pebble Beach, it's hard to bet against Tiger Woods . -Well, Tom Watson , not too shabby -Never [unk] there-- -around there either. -All right. We'll have to wait and see. Go vote if you don't
Martin's Library: Gravity Golf by David Lee
'School of Golf' host Martin Hall pulls a book from his library with tips sure to improve your tempo and ball striking. Watch 'School of Golf' Wednesday nights on Golf Channel. Download our instruction app from iTunes or Google playthe School of Golf Extended Library. My book today: Gravity Golf by David Lee . If you know you bashed the ball too hard, if you know you suffer from the caveman kill concept, you need thisshut up and get your arms relaxed. I don't agree with that. David Lee doesn't agree with that. And in fact, if you watched the film of two of the best we've ever had, Sam Snead and Jack Nicklaus, they didn't do that. Just before they went, they actually tightened their arms up. You go find some tape of Sam Snead , you will see he did that. What David Lee found and he's the only person I've heard talked about this, is he called it the First Release Point. He said you actually tighten up and heave that club away to about here and then relax your arms. Now, I found that is incredible for giving people a lovely change of directions. If you two lose when you start, it'll sort of get a bit too tight in the downswing. So, here we are that Sam Snead -- David Lee , tighten up before you go hopefully 'cause when you tighten up, swing back to back here and then my first release points. It gives me a definite feeling of softness it changed directions. Now, to complement that, David talks about how important it is when you start down that you fall on to your left leg . And you watch David do a little exercise drills and it should-- I mean, I'll just fall onto his left leg as a start there and indeed that's exactly what must happen. So, you got the heave away and then sort of just fall onto the left leg . So, the downswing starts from the ground up. Again, with no conscious acceleration of the arms. Two drills that David has to improve what he calls an appropriate section, your sense of where is the sweet spot, where are your hems, where are your arms. He calls the first one The No Reference Drill and The No Reference Drill is in fact you do not put the club behind the ball. You come in at a 90-degree angle here with the club lifted in the air, you use your hand and eye coordination . I think that's about the spot, I'm going to push it up, swing it away and then I come. And I'll tell
