Geoff Ogilvy has won the Accenture Match Play Championship for the second time in four years with a 4-and-3 victory over Paul Casey of England to stake his claim as the best in the world at match play.
In a relentless performance at Dove Mountain, the 31-year-old
Australian did not trail over the final 62 holes of the tournament
and did not have a bogey on his card over the last 57 holes.
He took the lead with a 6-foot birdie on the first hole of a
36-hole title match, and never gave Casey a chance. Ogilvy had a
3-up lead after the morning round, then shot 31 on the front nine
to pull away.
