England's drought in the Accenture World Match Play continued here in the Arizona desert yesterday as Paul Casey was beaten 4&3 by the Australian Geoff Ogilvy.

McIlroy win makes big impression

As the American crowds were still coming to terms with the all too brief appearance of Tiger Woods at his long-awaited comeback, the 19-year-old he would have played in yesterday's third round of the Accenture World Match Play set about proving that the world No 1 was better off at home.

"Alvaro Quiros," replied McNeilly. "Ah," said Van de Velde, rubbing his thumb against finger. "Money. Lots and lots of lovely money." That was probably exactly what McNeilly was thinking; indeed what all of the envious bagmen were thinking as they eyed up the shrewd Ulsterman's latest capture.
