Match play continues this week with the big boys, and it’s down to the Sweet 16 already. Chalk has prevailed, right down the brackets, with the top three seeds moving on in every region, like they knew what they were doing when they drew it up.
They fucking didn’t — they got lucky — and the wealth gap between the haves and have-nots in college basketball never seems to shrink.
Seeding is easier in golf than hoops, and it’s no upset when a 16 beats a 1. They’re all good, right on down through the World Top 64, give or take, in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play this week in Austin.
Betting this tournament unaided is perilous. Better to listen to me than be among the millions who won’t.
Xander Schauffele is the pick. Match play suits him — the kid’s cold-blooded. He’s money. Trust me.
