Tiger Woods suffered a second round defeat to Nick Watney on day two of the Accenture Matchplay. Woods struggled all day, especially with the flat stick and Watney capitalised. Woods' day summed up on the last when he missed an 8 foot putt to extend the match. Watney goes on to face Westwood. Rory Mcilroy could become world number with a win this week and he kept his dreams alive with a solid 3 and 2 win against Anders Hanson.

Bill Haas denied Mickelson his second win in a row by defeating lefty and USPGA Champion Keegan Bradley in a playoff. Mickelson and Bradley both holed impressive birdie putts at the tough 18th to match the 7 under total set in the clubhouse by 2011 FedEx Cup Champion Bill Haas. All 3 players parred the 18th on the first hole of the playoff before moving to the 10th. Haas then proceeded to hole a 43 ft putt for birdie and Bradley and Mickelson failed to hole out.
