Leish out, Woods gone too at WGC

Out of the Woods: Tiger produces INCREDIBLE trick shot to save par at WGC-Dell Match Play (VIDEO)

Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark shakes hands with Tiger Woods (L) of the United States after defeating him 1up during the quarterfinal round of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club on March 30, 2019 in Austin, Texas.

So there wasn't a championship on the line, but there was pressure. and, once again, McIlroy buckled in the face of Tiger Woods, losing 2&1. Then came the eagle at the 13th and another birdie at the 14th, with Woods playing a six-hole stretch from the 11th to the 16th in 6 under par.

Woods won back-to-back holes with birdies at the fifth and sixth as McIlroy's putting frailties began to show.

In the other semifinal, Francesco Molinari takes on Kevin Kisner. Woods, buried in a bunker off the tee, hit his third shot before McIlroy had to hit his second.

McIlroy had lost just three holes in going 3-0 coming into the match.

Wind and rain struck on the back nine but Woods weathered the storm to stay in contention for his fourth WGC Match Play crown and first since 2008. "Maybe towards the end of the match somewhere I'm going to have to respond to some of the shots he plays or some of the putts he holes".

"It was a cool experience for me, obviously to say I've beaten Tiger, there's not a lot of guys who can say that".

"At the end of the day, I'm the one that made the mistake", Garcia said.

Bjerregaard will play Matt Kuchar in a semi-final tomorrow morning.

First, he had to beat Henrik Stenson, and the Dane took care of Scandinavia's best player in 16 holes.

Kisner will now face Louis Oosthuizen, a 2 and 1 victor over Marc Leishman, while Open champion Molinari meets Kevin Na. Kisner won the round 1 up on his way to the final.

McIlroy hit back at the 12th after reaching the fringe of the green in two at the par-five, rolling his 40-foot eagle putt to tap-in range to register his first birdie of the match and cut the gap to two holes.

Given Woods had the honour on the 13th tee, which is a driveable par 4 over water, he said the decision to lay up with an iron was a tactical move.

Garcia, needing to birdie the 18th to send the match into extra holes, missed the green and wound up conceding.

They were in the same spot below the hill on the 18th, just under 50 yards from the hole.

Woods admitted he misread the putt.

Woods followed with birdies at 14 and 16. He did fall to Brandt Snedeker.

McIlroy, a four-time major champion, can complete a Career Grand Slam in two weeks by winning the Masters.
