It's not quite the NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament, but the WGC-Accentury Match Play Championship is providing the same kind of drama College Basketball fans look forward to every March.

The one thing March Madness never provides is a No. 16 seed knocking off a No. 1 seed, but Tiger Woods continued his struggles by falling apart when he needed his old game the most.

Of the No. 1 seeds to fall, Tiger Woods is the least shocking and only to exit in the first round. After sinking a clutch birdie putt to stay alive, Woods sent his drive on the first extra hole into hazardous desert landscape on the right side of the fairway. Nothing knew for Tiger these days, and those who picked him to win the tournament should have seen it coming (oops).

Woods said what we all already knew, "I blew it." But give credit to Thomas Bjorn. All he had to do was hang around long enough for Woods to implode once again.

Lee Westwood and Phil Mickelson were eliminated yesterday in Round 2. The two No. 1 seeds had very different circumstances in losing, though. Mickelson simply caught Rickie Fowler on the wrong day. Fowler was 8-under par when their match closed after the 13th hole.

Mickelson was seen smiling and shaking his head on the course as Fowler racked up two Eagles and a slew of birdies. There's not much else you can do in a situation like that. Just like in the NCAA Tournament, it's not always the best team that wins, but the hottest.

Fowler was hot all day, including the color of his shirt and shoes which looked like they had been dunked in a vat of neon pink highlighter dye.

"Sophia has some shoes like that," Mickelson said to Fowler on the range. "She wears them to her dance class." Fowler continued to dance circles around Mickelson for 13 holes.

Yet, that wasn't Mickelson's most accurate quote of the day. When asked about Fowler's golf game, he said, "He doesn't really have a weakness."

Other than attempting to blind spectators and viewers at home, I'd say Mickelson is pretty spot on about Fowler. There was evidence Mickelson wasn't going to win this match even if he matched Fowler shot-for-shot, though. As ESPN's Jason Sobel said on Twitter, had Mickelson beat Fowler, he would have moved ahead of Woods in the World Rankings. We know from experience that always brings out the worst in Mickelson.

With Nick Watney defeating Westwood, the only No. 1 seed left is Martin Kaymer, who needed 20 holes on Thursday to defeat Justin Rose. Kaymer won the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in 2010, just two years into his PGA Tour career, but has won eight times on the European Tour. He's a rising star that will, no doubt, be tough to beat in the next round.

Joining Fowler, 2010 U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell is playing to best golf in the tournament thus far. He beat Heath Slocum 4 & 3, then Ross Fisher 4 & 2, in the first two rounds of the tournament. His second round win will push him past Woods in the World Rankings, but that accomplishment doesn't seem to carry the weight it used to, even though McDowell said "he's definitely the greatest player that's ever lived."

It's an interesting quote from McDowell. Interesting and false at the same time, because Woods hasn't eclipsed Jack Nicklaus for the Greatest of All Time title. All I know, is I'm not betting against McDowell for as long as he remains in the tournament, partially because he's the only golfer left in my bracket's final four.
