Westwood sinks hole-in-one, Tiger holes out, and Rory wins third straight at Match Play Championships

Tiger Woods came from behind to set up a Saturday (March 30) showdown with Rory McIlroy after they both won matches in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Texas.Woods rallied to defeat fellow American Patrick Cantlay 4&2 and Northern Irishman McIlroy prevailed over England’s Matthew Fitzpatrick by the same score.

That put both in Saturday’s round of 16. The two were paired in the final group of last year’s Tour Championship in Atlanta, which Woods won while McIlroy shot a 4-over 74 to finish tied for seventh.Woods, the 13th seed, needed a win and a loss by Brandt Snedeker to avoid elimination. He got both.Woods posted four birdies and an eagle in a six-hole stretch on the back nine at Austin Country Club to claim the victory while Snedeker was beaten 6&4 by Aaron Wise.Cantlay had been 2 up at one point before Woods’ rally.Woods then moved out front with a six-footer at the 12th and got the crowd excited with an eagle from 82 yards.
