Accenture Match Play Starts Today

Most PGA Tour tournaments start on Thursday. And most are stroke play instead of match play.

Although it's Wednesday, the Accenture Match Play tournament starts today.

In case you don't know the difference... in stroke play, the lowest total strokes determines the winner. In contrast, in match play, the winner is the golfer who wins the most holes played. So a high score on one hole isn't the end of that player's tournament. He just lost that hole.

The leaderboard shows who is up, down, or whether the match is all square. If you see a player's name and 3 and 6, that means that player is leading by 3 with six holes to play.

Playing a match play format is different than stroke play. You should try it if you get a chance.

Here are the T.V. times for the tourney:
