The week kicked off with a major snow fall in a desert, and the top seeds dropped like flies in the days to follow.
Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, the top two overall seeds, lost in round one. Only two clutch putts on 17 and 18 saved Luke Donald from that same result, yet he was thrashed 7&6 in the very next round. Louis Oosthuzien, the final No. 1 seed, also fell in round two. And by the time round three rolled around, there was only one player among the top 10 in the world left in the tournament (Bubba Watson).
Sticking to the underdog-be-victorious script, Watson was handled easily by the fast-charging Aussie Jason Day Saturday morning.
The last three-and-a-half days in Arizona certainly have been crazy and many a great player has fallen, but there are plenty of top-notch golfers left to watch for.
The PGA Tour is a deep circuit with a host of talent spread throughout its membership. The No. 1 and No. 2 seeds are the creme of the crop, but No. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and even up to double digit seeds are players who have some serious game.
These players will be on serious display this afternoon, as we break down all of the quarterfinal matches.
