Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods did something remarkable: They made snow in the Arizona desert the second-biggest surprise at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship when they were both eliminated in the first round. But which golfer's departure was the bigger shocker: Top-seeded McIlroy being sent home by Ireland's Shane Lowry, or Charles Howell III beating the second-seeded Woods 2-and-1?


Cause for alarm?

McIlroy has played 54 holes of golf in the first two months of the season, thanks to early exits at Match Play and Abu Dhabi. Should the world's No. 1 golfer be concerned?
