Hideto Tanihara upset Jordan Spieth in the opening round of the WGC-Match Play in Austin, TX. When asked by local reporters about Jordan's "hometown crowd" advantage, Tanihara said he had a 'secret' weapon! Texas flag yardage book. It worked!

Rory McIlroy loses, Jordan Spieth losing. Why did tourney go from single-elim to round robin? That's why. Tour/TV didn't want one-and-done.
