Accenture match play's future in doubt?

10:39 AM ET 02.26 | The contract that binds the Match Play event to Dove Mountain essentially expires Sunday. The silence from Accenture and the PGA Tour has created a din. "It's on the tip of everybody's tongue," said Wade Dunagan, executive director of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. "Everybody is very concerned. Everybody is very curious." Although Dunagan declined comment on his future, it's almost certain he will leave his position, possibly by next week. That can't be good. At this stage - without a contract for 2012, without a word from PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem or the Accenture high command - paranoia creeps in. In a city that has lost major-league spring training, a college football bowl game, an LPGA Tour event, USA Baseball and even the Pro Bowlers tour, we know how to worry and when to worry. Now is that time.

"It's on the tip of everybody's tongue"
Really? Maybe the problem was it was never talked about.

If Texas is the rectum of the US, the Tucson area is the sigmoid colon.

The 2,150 television viewers that watched the tourney should decide whether it continues.
