The Match Play Championship is returning to Dove Mountain in 2012 for the sixth straight year.

The PGA Tour said Monday that the World Golf Championship event again will be played at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, where Luke Donald won last month over Martin Kaymer.

The contract with Dove Mountain is to expire after 2012, while Accenture's title sponsorship agreement goes through 2014.

The PGA Tour also said that Gerald Goodman, a popular tournament director with players when he ran the tour event at Innisbrook near Tampa, Fla., would take over as executive director of the Match Play Championship.

Match Play has been at four courses since it began in 1999 — seven years at La Costa, one year in Australia, two years at The Gallery on Dove Mountain and the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club.
