Big names could miss the WGC-Accenture Match Play

To qualify for the World Golf Championship-Accenture Match Play, a player must be ranked inside the Top-64 on the Official World Golf Rankings.

Over the next two weeks, names like Padraig Harrington, Stewart Cink and Vijay Singh are currently on the outside looking in.

Harrington, who is currently ranked 69th, has the best shot of the three to play his way into the event -- Though he is off this week.

However, Singh on the other hand, is down in the 90th position on the OWGR list. Needing some stellar player over the next two weeks to have a shot at making the event in Marana, Arizona.

Cink, has the most work to do of the three players mentioned here.

Currently, the 2009 British Open champion is in the 138th spot on the rankings list. Needing all of a miracle to make it into the top-64 in the next two weeks.

If the former Georgia Tech standout were to miss the WGC event, it would be only his second time missing out on the event in his career.

Cink has also performed quite well through his career at the event. Including semi-finals appearances in 2008 and 2012. With six other trips to the quarter finals.

Other names who are likely going to miss the event include; Anthony Kim, Camilo Villegas and the hard-luck loser of the Farmers Insurance Open and much talked about, Kyle Stanley.
