I’ll actually be in Hawaii for only one day and then I’m heading back to California, to San Diego to be precise, for this week’s Accenture World Matchplay – the first WGC event on the 2006 schedule. It’s the first time I’ve played in this event since 2003. I imagine you’ll all be familiar with the format; 18-hole matchplay for the first four days and, if you make it to the final, a 36-hole showdown on Sunday.It all kicks off on Wednesday and I’ll be making sure I get in a couple of practice rounds before then. If I’m being honest, this is one event on the PGA Tour where my record really isn’t good. It’s a tough thing to explain.

The good news is, I’ve just sneaked ahead of Phil in the World Rankings, up to number 4, so I get one of the seeded spots in the four different ‘brackets’, along with Tiger, Vijay and Retief. That means I don’t get to play any of those guys until at least the semi-finals, although let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. I’ve got to make it that far yet – and I haven’t managed that since 2001 in Australia, where I lost in the semis. (More here.)
