MARANA, Ariz. -- Tiger Woods had a one-liner ready when asked about the weather forecast that includes the possibility of snow at the Match Play Championship, saying: "We won't be able to work on our suntans."

Play was set to open Wednesday at Dove Mountain with temperatures in the low 40s and a high of 47. Strong wind was expected in the afternoon with showers that could change from rain to snow on the cactus-lined High Sonoran Desert course.

Two years ago, morning snow covered the course before Luke Donald beat Martin Kaymer in the championship match. There also was a 10-minute delay when sleet coated the fourth fairway.
