Accenture splits from Match Play

Posted: Updated:

Marana, AZ (KOLD) - Global management consultant Accenture will no longer be the title sponsor for the Match Play Championship following the 2014 tournament, this according to an article written by Golfweek's Alex Micili.

Accenture has been the title sponsor ever since 1999.

When asked for his reaction, Match Play Executive Director Gerald Goodman told sports director Damien Alameda only that he is trying to make the 2014 tournament the best ever.

Could this signal the end of Match Play in Marana? As Micili indicated, that would depend on a new sponsor.

2013 Master's champion Adam Scott has already decided to skip the tournament. Justin Rose and others, including Tiger Woods, have considered it.

The tournament tees of February 19th.
