The WGC Accenture Match Play Championship is part of the World Golf Championships series of tournaments and the title sponsor of the series' season-opening event, the Accenture Match Play Championship. This event is played at match play, rather than stroke play, and begins with a field of 64 golfers. The golfers face off in single-elimination, 18-hole, match-play matches, until two remain for the 36-hole championship match.
Unlike stroke play, which tallies the number of strokes from all 18 holes to determine the winner, match play is a hole-by-hole format from the very first hole, providing a player with the ultimate test of his game. The player winning the most holes wins the match.
Dove Mountain Golf Club: Tortolita Mountains just north of Tucson, the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain Golf Club became the host to the Match Play Tournament as of 2009. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, The Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain features 27 holes of golf and a 50,000 square foot clubhouse.
The World Golf Championships, or WGC, is a series of high-profile tournaments with international fields, considered the most important tournaments outside of the four majors and the Players Championship.

It had been five years since Luke Donald last won a PGA Tour event. When he closed out Martin Kaymer on the 16th hole, the 33-year-old Englishman had won his first World Golf Championship with an awesome performance. He played 89 holes in six matches, the fewest ever in the 13-year history of this event, and became the first player to never trail after any hole in any match. Donald led his opponent after 81 of those 89 holes. He made 32 birdies, which is slightly better than one every three holes. He became the first player to win any tournament without ever having to play the 18th hole. Donald's longest match was in the second round when he beat Edoardo Molinari on the 17th hole.
The 2009 tournament was dramatic, a battle between golfers Paul Casey and Geoff Ogilvy. The close match ended with Australian Geoff Ogilvy winning the 2009 championship.
