Bo Van Pelt dusted John Senden 6 and 5 in the Snead Bracket in the opening round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.
After five successive delays lasting four-and-a-half hours, play resumed at Dove Mountain in Marana, Ariz. Senden has a 1-up lead after six holes, but then lost the next seven in a row, the last with a bogey-6 on the 13th hole. During that stretch, BVP won two holes with birdies, four with pars and one with a concession. He's the first to advance to Friday's second round during which he'll square off against the winner of Ian Poulter v. Stephen Gallacher. Feb. 21 - 3:14 pm et
