The 64-man field for next week's Accenture Match Play Championship at the Golf Club at Dove Mountain has been finalized.

The field locked at 3 p.m., this afternoon.

As expected, Brandt Snedeker and Phil Mickelson are the only two golfers in the top 64 not in the field. Snedeker withdrew earlier this week with a rib injury. Mickelson is skipping the event for the second straight year to spend time with his family.

The bracket and tee times for the tournament will be released Sunday night once the world golf rankings are updated. That's a change from recent years when they have been released Monday morning.

In the event a player has to withdraw before the tournament because of an injury, the next player on the alternate list will take his place. Austria's Bernd Wiesberger would be the next one in if anyone withdraws.

Sixteen countries are represented in the 64-man field with a total of 43 international players.
