Justin Thomas advances to Match Play semifinals

In semifinal-action at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, 32-seed Kevin Kisner outlasted 13-seed Alex Noren in 19 holes and advances to the Finals Match against 35-seed and fellow Georgia alum Bubba Watson.

An excellent tee shot at the fifth led to Watson giving himself the opportunity to sink another birdie at the fifth, which he grasped to go 2up, and he had a three-hole advantage after a 25-foot eagle putt at six.

Watson stretched his lead to 7 up a hole later as Kisner drilled a 20-footer to save par at the par-4 10th, only to have Watson make an 11-foot birdie putt on top of his competitor. Booming 400-yard drives, firing approaches straight at flags and pouring putts into the middle of the hole, the four-time major victor announced his return to the winners' enclosure in emphatic fashion, carding a sparkling 64 to win at Bay Hill by three strokes.

Kisner chases the biggest title of his career, having won PGA crowns at Colonial a year ago and Sea Island in 2015. That put him in the semifinals for the first time since his Match Play debut in 2011 when it was in Arizona.

"All I can do is go play the best I can", Thomas said. Yesterday I could feel it after the round with my driver.

In a rough day for the big names at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, Jordan Spieth, Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson all tumbled out of the event Friday in Austin, Texas.

That's how you do it in match play. "If I was sick or really sick, me trying to play this week wasn't going to do me any good".

McIlroy said: "I wish I was hanging around for the weekend, but I'll rest up and get a little bit of work in before going to Augusta", said McIlroy. Instead, Kyle Stanley made an 8-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to win, and then he beat Casey on the second hole of a playoff.

Justin Thomas meets Si Woo Kim while England's Tyrrell Hatton beat Brendan Steele in a playoff and now faces Australian Cameron Smith.

Garcia, who conducted a teleconfe rence with the media on Tuesday from an Austin, Texas, hospital, 90 minutes after his wife Angela went into labor, had to wait almost 17 more hours before their daughter was born.

Initially Garcia started well and was 1up after two holes, however Stanley came storming back and by the turn the American was three ahead.

"I haven't had such a hard time not thinking about something so much", he said. Howell won the group and kept alive his hopes for getting into the top 50 to earn a spot in the Masters. So I pointed him out to my [police] officer and then he made a decision to get him out of the course because he was being disrespectful not only to me but to everyone around.
