Adjust Comment Print

Tiger Woods missed what many would consider an easy putt on Saturday in windy conditions in the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship at the Austin Country Club in Texas, ending his run in the event. Bjerregaard beat Henrik Stenson 3&2 in his match.

Woods had beaten Rory McIlroy earlier on Saturday 2 and 1, and then built a 2-up lead early in the round against Bjerregaard, a two-time European Tour victor.

Lucas Bjerregaard delivered the clutch shots so often seen from Woods to tie the match on the 16th hole and beat him on the 18th hole in a shocking conclusion when Woods missed a 4-foot putt.

McIlroy, who had dropped only three holes in three matches, was 3-down after 10 against Woods but birdied to win 12 and 13 and looked to win 16 after Woods buried his tee shot under a bunker lip.

"At the end of the day, I'm the one that made the mistake", Garcia said.

"I just hope I put up a better fight than I did in Atlanta past year", McIlroy said.

The 27-year-old Dane, the victor of last year's Alfred Dunhill Links and 52nd in the world rankings, is joined in the last four by reigning Open champion Francesco Molinari (who won holes 2-7 in blowing past Kevin Na, 6-and-5) and a pair of Americans: Matt Kuchar (a 2-up victor over Sergio Garcia) and Kevin Kisner (who won the final three holes to stun Louis Oosthuizen, 2-and-1).

"And so I put it in the fairway and I thought his drive might have snuck but into the rough back there, but from the way they were kind of looking at the golf ball, it looked like it was probably going to be in the fairway".

Fresh off an awesome left-handed shot on a ball that was under a bush during Thursday's action, Tiger continued the theatrics on Friday afternoon by sinking an 82-yard wedge shot on the par-4 13th for an eagle 2.

It all happened too soon for Kuchar to have formally conceded which led Garcia to lose the hole and fall two behind in their quarter-final. "I went back and hit it again and it did the same thing".

But his search for a weekend birdie ended at the par-5 12th as his approach landed two feet from the cup, and McIlroy added another from five feet at 13 to pull within 1-down, setting up the final drama.
