Woods beats McIlroy at Match Play Championship

Sergio Garcia left and Matt Kuchar right discuss the controversial incident that occurred on the seventh hole

Tiger Woods finally met his match in Austin, Texas, and it wasn't Rory McIlroy.

Woods then moved out front with a six-footer at the 12th and got the crowd excited with an eagle from 82 yards.

Bjerregaard always dreamed of simply playing against Woods, his golfing hero. McIlroy was on the verge of squaring the match on the 16th when he had a short iron for his second shot into the par-5 16th.

Molinari, the highest remaining seed at seventh, beat American Kevin Na 6&5 and Kisner saw off South African Louis Oosthuizen 2&1.

Four-time major victor McIlroy beat England's Matthew Fitzpatrick 4&2 to complete an unbeaten sweep of his group, never trailing in any match.

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. Conditions were tough today, and we both threw in a bunch of birdies at it. "And just to get to play him was an experience for me".

Four golfers began Sunday morning's semifinal round in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play with their eyes focused on earning a spot in the final round.

But Cantlay would not win another hole, making a big mistake by driving into a penalty area at the downhill ninth.

Reigning Open champion Molinari, Europe's Ryder Cup hero in last year's triumph over the U.S. team in France, eliminated English 10th seed Paul Casey 5&4 and then beat United States 57th seed Kevin Na 6&5.

With Woods having to play out sideways from a fairway bunker, and then hitting his third on the green to 25 feet, McIlroy was in the fairway after bombing his tee shot 395 yards. He built a 2-up lead with birdies at the fifth and sixth holes, then was gifted the 10th-hole when McIlroy missed a 3-footer.

Woods chipped into a bunker but blasted out and, after Bjerregaard missed a birdie put to win, the 43-year-old American lipped out his last putt.

Whatever dwindling hopes McIlroy might have had flickered out when Woods stared down a 13-foot putt, then sank it to close out McIlroy 2&1.

He was about only 100 feet from the hole, but McIlroy pitched long, over the green, and with spectators scurrying out of the way, the ball came to rest against a wooden bulkhead.

Park in position: In Carlsbad, Calif., Inbee Park, winless in a full calendar year, curled in an 18-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th for her second straight 5-under 67 and a one-shot edge in the Kia Classic. Of the previous four players who made it to the championship match in consecutive years, only Paul Casey (2009-10) lost both times.

Tiger Woods is advancing to the round of 16 with his win over Patrick Cantlay and Brandt Snedeker's loss to Aaron Wise.
