Marana, US: World No. 1 Rory McIlroy and 14-time major champion Tiger Woods lead the qualifiers announced on Monday for next week's World Golf Championships Match Play Championship.

The top 64 in Monday's world golf rankings were set for the showdown near Tucson but exact brackets will not be established until Sunday, in part because players have until Friday to commit to play in the $8.75 million event.

Three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson, ranked 10th, has said he will not play in the event, allowing 65th-ranked Shane Lowry of Ireland to advance into the field and make his first career start in the 64-player event.
