Bubba Still Has Chance To Win At Format That Is "Not Golf To Me"

With Bubba Watson as the only top 10 seed to advance to the final sixteen of the WGC Accenture Match Play, I guess it's now worth noting his crabby comments from the earlier week.

Thanks to reader Chris from DE for sending these golf.com comments from Bubba about match play, which I deemed irrelevant in anticipation of first round loss by the struggling Watson. That should give you some idea how my brackets are looking right now.

Anyway, Jeff Ritter reports the context and remarks for golf.com and the textbook Bobby Joe Grooves comment:

"I don't like it. I'd rather play stroke play for four days," Watson told Golf.com on Tuesday near a practice area here at the Golf Club at Dove Mountain. "You can make an eight on a hole and you're only one down. That's not golf to me. I think it should be, everybody gets up there and tries to shoot a score."
