WGC Dell Match Play 2017


World No. 1 Dustin Johnson stayed on track to become the first player to win all four World Golf Championships events, when he advanced to the semi-finals at the WGC-Dell Matchplay in Texas on Saturday.

Rahm, a barrel-chested, 22-year-old rookie out of Arizona State, waylaid No. 61 Charles Howell III, 6 and 4, while Haas parred the 18th hole to finish off No. 46 Kevin Na, 1-up.

Next up for the American top seed is a Sunday morning semi-final against Japanese 54th seed Hideto Tanihara, while Spaniard 21st seed Jon Rahm and American 42nd seed Bill Haas meet in the other semi.

"The golf I've played the last three matches really has been very impressive, even to myself, " he said.

"I didn't get the putts to go this match the way I had been making them previously and that was the difference", he said.

His big miss came on the par-3 No. 11 when the tucked his tee shot inside of Rahm, then had a short birdie attempt to win the hole shave the right side of the cup.

"It's not a place where rookies usually win for the first time". That's the most eligible players to skip Match Play since 2001, when it began January 3 in Australia and 38 players chose not to play.

Sears has 'substantial doubt' about its future
Going concern refers to a company's ability to remain in business. "The Sears Canada operation runs separately from Sears U.S. Sears would regain its health by closing struggling stores and focusing instead on profitable sales, he wrote.

Tanihara, who defeated two-time major victor Jordan Spieth in his first group match, reduced his deficit to a single hole before losing the 12th after three-putting it for par, but birdied the next two holes to get back to all square.

Throw in the fact that players on the fringe of the Top 50 are attempting to qualify for the Masters in a couple weeks, and this is some high-stakes golf.

Mickelson had three birdies on his round while Leishman, the victor last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, conceded three holes after poor shots left him out of position.

Johnson was almost flawless during pool play and cruised past Zach Johnson, 6 and 4, in the Round of 16. He was 2-down through 15 and had a chance to cut the margin on 16, but missed an eagle putt that would have won the hole. "I think I was 7-under for the two rounds I played here". "I've got to keep hitting it the way I have been and make some putts". On Friday, he was on the verge of being eliminated when he hit into a hazard in a sudden-death playoff against K.T. Kim to decide their group.

A par was good enough to win the eighth and birdies on the 10th and 12th helped Rahm seal another emphatic victory in the €9million event.

The weird week in Austin was just another odd chapter for him in 2017.
