Furyk Will Win

A friend e-mailed demanding that I announce my pick to win the Accenture Match Play Championship. Fair enough. It'll be Jim Furyk. The course is the right length for him (just over 7000 yards), he's got a ton of match play experience (he's a Ryder Cup veteran and beat Nick Faldo in a legendary match at Valderama) and he can putt. He should win his next match over Kevin Sutherland, which gets him to the quarter finals. I like his chances.
