Accenture Match Play 2012 Bracket: Plenty Of Upsets Through First Half Of Day 1

The first round of the 2012 Accenture Match Play tournament has produced plenty of upsets through the first half of Wednesday. Higher-ranked seeds have lost 10 out of 16 matches so far, setting up a Day 2 bereft of a lot of top names. Of the players eliminated so far, two were ranked in the Top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking.

Australian Adam Scott, a No. 2 seed at the tournament, fell to Robert Rock of England (who has yet to play in a PGA Event this year) by three holes with two left to play. Not to be outdone, world No. 6 and 2-seed Webb Simpson dropped his match 3 and 2 to Italian Matteo Manassero.

Graeme McDowell and last week's Northern Trust Open winner Bill Haas also lost as 3-seeds at the tournament. Moving on were Steve Stricker (2 and 1), Jason Day (19 holes), and Charl Schwartzel (4 and 2). In perhaps the best match of the day, Dustin Johnson needed 20 holes to finally take out Jim Furyk.

Tiger Woods was seeded in the No. 5 spot for the tournament, and he is one hole up on Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano with two holes left to play. Luke Donald and Rory McIlroy are struggling as 1-seeds at the moment; both are down one stroke against their challengers through eight and seven holes, respectively.
