The reason there isn't more match play is simple, it's difficult for the TV stations to broadcast the matches when they have no way of knowing how long the individual matches are going to last and they could end up with 45 minutes to kill at the end of the show if each match ended at the 14th or 15th hole. We all know that TV money is what runs the show. There's also the possibility of two unknowns ending up playing on the last day, with no one watching. I must say that I too prefer match play to stroke play.
