Are You Surprised?

The HSBC Match Play (Wentworth, Oct.11-14) is suffering the same fate as the Skins Game: None of the big stars want to play. According to Ireland Online, Tiger Woods, Zach Johnson, Jim Furyk and Sergio Garcia have all turned down spots. So now Colin Montgomerie can play, along with Niclas Fasth. (The field also includes Ernie Els, Retief Goosen and defending champion Paul Casey.)
