As the tournament lends itself, the final rounds of the WGC- Accenture Match Play Championship were anything but normal.

Starting out the day in the semifinals, Jason Day faced Rickie Fowler and Ernie Els faced Victor Dubuisson. Day beat Fowler 3 and 2 and Dubuisson went 18 to be Els 1 up.

Going into the final round Els and Fowler were paired up to duke it out for third and fourth place. Fowler came out on top, having to go an extra hole to finish 1 up. Fowler left Marana with a $630,000 in prize money and Els collected $510,000.

With the unique style of match play, Dubusson and Day set out on the course just after noon and finished nearly five and a half hours later going 23 holes. Day, who had not won a hole since 9, which was conceded to him by Dubusson, lost his 3 up lead on 18 to make it all square.

The two fought it stroke for store for the next five holes with Day coming out on top due to a poor chip shot from Dubusson.

Dubusson left with $900,000 in prize money and Day, who won the Accenture Match Play Championship, left with a check for $1,530,000.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
