Bubba dismisses match-play golf
US Masters champion Bubba Watson is not a fan of match-play golf, and he's not backward in coming forward about saying so, especially when the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship is about to begin.

"I don't like it. I'd rather play stroke play for four days," Watson said on Tuesday near a practice area at Dove Mountain, the venue for the World Golf Championship event.

"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."

What many are thinking more about is the inclement weather that has been predicted for the tournament. Despite the fine weather on Tuesday, icy showers and low temperatures threaten the desert venue for Wednesday's opening day.

But Bubba's just as ambivalent about the weather as he is this format of the game.

"There's no difference to me. You're going to have sunny days and you're going to have rainy days. It's just golf," said Watson.

"Tomorrow you're playing just one guy, you don't have to worry about the whole field, and hopefully you can hit some better shots and make more putts than he does."
