California: Sergio Garcia will skip the Match Play Championship in two weeks, the fourth straight year the tournament will be missing a top-ranked player. Garcia said at the Buick Invitational that he might not play in the first World Golf Championship of the year, citing a busy travel schedule. Clarke Jones, his agent at IMG, cited scheduling on Tuesday as the reason for Garcia not playing. He said the 26-year-old Spaniard would play the following week at Miami. Garcia is ranked No. 6 in the world. Ernie Els did not go to La Costa for the Accenture Match Play Championship the last two years, while Vijay Singh missed in 2003 because of a rib injury. The 64-man field will be determined on Monday by the world ranking. (AP)
