This week: WGC-Accenture Match Play Championships, Wednesday through Sunday, Ritz-Carlton Golf Club of Dove Mountain, Marana, Ariz.
Seed: 13th in the Bobby Jones Bracket.
First round: Defeated No. 4 seed K.J. Choi, 2 and 1.
Recap: Thirteen double-digit seeds, including Stanley, posted upset victories Tuesday. And five of them came in the Jones bracket. Choi took a 1-up lead when he eagled the par-5 13th hole, but Stanley ran off a three-hole string of wins, starting when he tried to drive the green on the par-4 15th, got up and down and made an 8-footer for birdie. He then watched Choi self-destruct, missing the green at the 16th, and then coming up short on a 16-foot par-saving bid to give Stanley a 1-up lead. The match came to an end at No. 17 when the Bellarmine Prep product got up and down out of a greenside bunker, sinking a 4-foot putt for par while Choi again bogeyed.
Quoteworthy: “It was a goal of mine at the beginning of the year to be here. Format or not, it’s a golf course that sets up really good for me, if I could get that driver straightened out a little bit and hit a couple of good shots with the driver today. It’s a big hitters golf course. It’s pretty long. It sets up nice for me.”
Tee time Thursday: 11:01 a.m. PST against Brandt Snedeker, the No. 5 seed.
