Bubba Watson gets bad bunker break in opening WGC Match Play loss

Bubba Watson gets bad bunker break in opening WGC Match Play loss

"It's going to be fun to play against him", Woods said. He won on the 17th hole when Mickelson's tee shot went over the green, off the rocks and into a hazard.

He fell 2 down through two and played his first four holes in 4 over before settling down with back-to-back birdies at Nos. "So it was really cool to hit some clutch shots and pull off a tie there two down and three to go".

After matching Woods' birdie at the par-5 12th, Wise played the final seven holes 5-over par, starting on the next hole when his ball spun off the front of the green into the water.

J.T. made it to the semifinals here a year ago but couldn't get anything going on Wednesday, especially on the back nine where he made six pars and a bogey in the seven holes they played.

Jordan Spieth birdied his last two holes for a halve against Billy Horschel, which felt bigger than that the way his year has gone. 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. Looked like I was about ready to go 2-down through 11, all of a sudden I'm all square. "I got off to a pretty sour start, put myself in a hole early. It's one of those weird matches".

Justin Harding of South Africa, just inside the top 50 and in danger of being passed, was two down with three to play against Matt Fitzpatrick when he won the last three holes - two of them with pars - to win the match. Cantlay will play Wise on Thursday and Woods on Saturday.

The 64 players are split into 16 groups of four, with only the group winners advancing to the knockout stages at the weekend.

New book details Barbara Bush's dislike of Trump, estrangement from GOP
Bush was hopeful that the US would survive what she saw as a painfully disruptive episode that turned the presidency on its ear. I don't know how women can vote for someone who said what he said about Megyn Kelly", she said in an interview with CBS News .


Woods, ranked 14th in the world, is playing in the WGC-Dell Match Play for the first time since 2013.

The Woods-Wise pairing matched two former NCAA champions 20 years apart.

Europe's bid for a fourth win in a row on U.S. soil began well with Danes Lucas Bjerregaard and Thorbjorn Olesen beating Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson respectively.

England's Tom Lewis managed a tie against third-ranked Brooks Koepka.

Justin Rose, +2000 - Justin Rose is coming off a strong showing at the Players Championship, and maybe that momentum is enough to finally lead to some success in Austin.

Fleetwood and Molinari became the first European pair to win all four of their matches together in September's Ryder Cup victory over the United States at Le Golf National, with Open champion Molinari finishing with a ideal 5-0 record.

I give the abrasive Horschel an edge over the aloof Watson for the simple fact that his ball-striking has been solid - and Bubba doesn't seem like he wants to be here.
