TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) _ Tiger Woods got a new first-round opponent in the Accenture Match Play Championship on Sunday when J.J. Henry replaced South Africa's Charl Schwartzel in the 64-man field.

Schwartzel, 60th in the world ranking last Monday when the field was set for the World Golf Championship event at The Gallery, decided to skip the tournament in a bid to top the Southern Africa tour's money list.

Henry, 65th in the ranking, will face the top-ranked Woods in the first round Wednesday. Brett Quigley, ranked 64th, will open against second-ranked Jim Furyk instead of Woods.
