Rain mars World Match Play Championship

Wentworth, England:

South African Retief Goosen completed a 12-and-11 rout of American Jeff Maggert in the first round of the World Match Play Championship on Thursday, the biggest victory margin in the tournament's 41-year history. Goosen, the US Open champion, made light of tough conditions at a rain-swept Wentworth, in southern England, to see off Maggert over just 25 of the scheduled 36 holes. That was the only match to finish, although defending champion Ernie Els is two-up with two holes to play against Scott Drummond. (AP)
