HSBC matchplay
What do you think of the new look world matchplay? Ever been to watch or witnessed some thrilling matches? Or is it a glorified made-for-TV exhibition?

I love the Match Play at Wentworth and am always defending it to snarky friends who sneer at it as a "silly season" event. One of their cavils makes some sense, however: the first-round "byes." I think they would be better off, and serve the principles of Match Play better, if they expanded th efield to 16 and played everyone from the get-go.

Will be interesting to see what the ticket costs are this year.

Always seemed to be reasonably priced in the past.
