Watson eliminated early in Match Play defense

Rory Mc Ilroy with Tiger Woods

Woods would par the hole, but it wasn't enough to beat Brandt Snedeker in the match.

The world number four safely saw off 47th seed Justin Harding three and two at Austin Country Club to add to Wednesday's win over Luke List.

"We've played tournaments together, battled each other down the stretch at events, but never in a match-play situation, so this will be fun".

"Just got hot right when I needed it", Woods said. It hasn't been pretty for Rose at his event, finishing no better than 17th in each of the last eight years, but he's one of those guys who thrives in these type of environments and has been a crucial piece in Ryder Cups over the years.

"I'm just trying to each day feel like I progressed a little more in what I'm working on", Spieth told a news conference. He eventually closed it out a 5-and-4 victor.

"I had a great match with Eddie, he's such a class individual and player to the point where you nearly feel sorry for doing that to him over the last few holes", Rose, who was the tournament host of the British Masters won by Pepperell a year ago, told Sky Sports.

He will face Rory McIlroy in the Round of 16 on Saturday morning with the format being straight knock out through to Sunday's final match.

While Wise will need to win his final two matches and get some help in order to advance, Woods is still in the driver's seat.

"I finished off with two birdies yesterday and two birdies again (today)", McIlroy said. "It was a match I wanted to win".

Perhaps the biggest upset of the day belonged to Denmark's Lucas Bjerregaard, who whipped fifth-ranked Justin Thomas 3 and 2.

Wise, who won the NCAA individual title at OR 20 years after Woods did it in 1996 at Stanford, lamented a poor start and an approach at 13 that seemed to turn the match.

Former champion Jason Day has been eliminated from Match Play after his second-round loss to Henrik Stenson.

Watson still has an important match to play Friday when he goes off against local favorite Jordan Spieth, who is still in contention for the weekend.

Defending champion Bubba Watson lost his opening match for the first time since he began playing this event in 2011. He made a 6-foot birdie to match Horschel and send it to the 18th, and he lofted a wedge to 2 feet for birdie to win the 18th. Spain's Jon Rahm, the No. 2 seed, was even more convincing in his 7 and 5 win over South Korea's Si Woo Kim (54).

In the four previous years of the pool play format, advancing after a first-day loss has proven hard. I knew I needed to put it up there to at least have a chance at a 3, to force him to have a good pitch from down there.
