Birdied 1 to go 1 up. He made a suspect concession on 2 after going in the water. I thought he might've been able to get up and down for 5, but I had a 50ft putt for 4. I missed a putt on 3 to win the hole. I parked my 2nd on 4 with a ridiculous roller. He missed a putt for 4 and conceded the hole. We both missed birdie putts on 5. I threw a ridiculous approach shot on 6 to win the hole. I made a big putt to halve 7. So being up 4 I tried laying up to the double mando, but I missed a little left and slid too far so I took a penalty and he won the hole with par. With new life Phil pounded 2 shots to pin high on 9, but I made a great up and down for birdie 4 to halve. Then I got all my 390 and made about a 35-40 footer to win 10. Even being up 3 going into 9, 9 and 10 was the most important part of the match. If he wins 9, I would've been in trouble. He missed a short sidehill putt on 11 and after running at it I made another 30 footer to halve. I missed a 25 ft headwind putt on 12 to win. We both made spectacular birdies on 13 (the best hole on the course). Then he 3-jacked 14 to lose the match 5-4.

I know he wasn't making an excuse, but he wore the wrong shoes. He wore shoes that were better on wet grass, but they were horrible on the tee. When he slipped on 2 you could tell he was not comfortable on the tee for a few holes. Then he just never made a putt to get going. The missed putt on 4 didn't matter, but the miss on 5 was big. He didn't putt again until 11 which was a tricky stance from 20ft. It was over after he missed that one. Ironically, Paul missed the same putt on 11 and I was able to square it up on 12. I needed the lead going into 16 because it's everything I got to get to 16,17, and 18. I 3-jacked 15 to put me down one. We both made big birdie putts on 16 and he made birdie on 17 to win it. 17 is a tough hole. Still haven't played 18! I have a great strategy for it. Hope I can use it sometime.

I'm so jacked about this format. I already talked to Shane about doing this in Iowa this summer. The brackets work really well. I just wonder if we could get 64. It could be done in 2 days now that I've seen it.

Hode on. I take that back. Neif will definitely bring better beer. I'll take the 9 seed in the Steele bracket. Thanks!

Yeah, I've been anxious to play an actual 18 hole match play...the March Madness I did in 2001 was 18 stroke play top 8 go to 7 hole match play and the remaining field played a separate set of holes "NIT" (never 18 ).

Brad beats Dave.

Live coverage is pretty cool.
