Gong against a buddy in match play format is tough. Take it from last year’s winner, Matt Kuchar.
“Somebody don’t know very well is probably easier to play than somebody I know well,” Kuchar said Tuesday, the day before the start of the Accenture Match Play Championship in Marana.
Of course, Kuchar’s list of enemies is pretty short.
“I like everybody,” he said, laughing.
Kuchar starts defense of his title tomorrow at 9:45 a.m. against Austria’s Bernd Wiesberger.
