The first round of the Accenture match play got snowed out (in Arizona!)
Back in my younger days, I spent four years enjoying Tucson, Ariz. as a proud Arizona Wildcat. There was a day that it rained so much we actually bought rafts and floated down the street to the football game. I remember days so hot that even a pool visit was too extreme of an outdoors adventure, and days so cold students were bundled up in multiple layers as they headed out to class. But snow? I don't remember any snow.
Wednesday at the Accenture Match Play was rather unreal in the terms of weather. While it does get cold in Arizona over the winter, snow in this area is pretty unusual for late in February. Golf was called with plenty of big names still warming up to start their matches, but we did get to see some golf out there and here is a recap of some of the matches.

Bo Van Pelt cruising in his match against John Senden -- The cold and rain didn't seem to bother Van Pelt, who was 5-under with six holes to play when everyone was told to return to the clubhouse, winning six holes in a row before play was called.
Jason Day 6-up on Zach Johnson -- It was a pretty solid day for one Australian, who was dismantling Johnson after just 10 holes. Day is currently 6-under in his match with eight holes to play.
Hunter Mahan in command against Matteo Manassero -- These two have played the front nine at Dove Mountain and Mahan sits 4-up despite playing the outward nine at just even par.
Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald and Louis Oosthuizen, the No. 1 seeds, have yet to tee off in their first rounds.
