Tiger Woods Headlines Accenture Match Play Championship Contenders: Bracket, Tee Times, TV Schedule

For those of you unfamiliar with the Match Play Championship, it works very similar to March Madness. Golfers play each other in pairings based on seeding, with the top golfer facing the last golfer in the field, the second best golfer facing the 63rd, and so on and so forth. They'll play each other in six rounds, eliminating each other by playing the better round of golf on each day. The format is currently a five-day, six-match tournament starting on Wednesday, with a match per day for the first four days. The semifinals, third-place match and final are played on Sunday.

Here's the TV schedule.

Wednesday: 10 am – 4 pm MT (Golf Channel)
Thursday: 12 – 4 pm MT (Golf Channel)
Friday: 12 – 4 pm MT (Golf Channel)
Saturday: 10 am – 12 pm MT (Golf Channel), 12 - 4 pm MT (NBC)
Sunday: 7 - 11 am MT (Golf Channel), 12 - 4 pm MT (NBC)
