Accenture Match Play 2012 Bracket: Tiger Woods Eliminated By Nick Watney

Tiger Woods will not be moving on to the third round of the 2012 World Golf Championships - Accenture Match Play Championships, as he was eliminated Thursday in match play by Nick Watney.

Woods, the No. 5 seed in the Sam Snead bracket, took an early lead thanks to a birdie on the second hole and Watney's bogey on the fifth. That put Tiger up one going into the seventh, but Watney took charge, winning that hole thanks to a Woods bogey. Watney then went one-up on the 10th, two-up on the 12th and withstood a late rally by Tiger to win the round.

Woods won the 16th hole to get within one of Watney, but missed an eight-foot birdie putt on 18 to force extra holes, sending the fourth-seeded Watney on to the quarters where he will face Lee Westwood, the No. 1 seed in the Sam Snead bracket.

Woods has won the tournament three times, the most of any golfer, and most recently in 2008. Woods lost in the first round of the tournament last year.
