Bubba Watson routs Kevin Kisner to win WGC-Dell Match Play

Rory McIlroy had a chance to advance except that he was beaten soundly by Brian Harman. I don't put a monumental amount of stock into what happens at this event because it's so random and seemingly freakish, but Bubba is clearly in better form right now than he was at this time previous year.

"I haven't had such a hard time not thinking about something so much". "Stuff I took for granted in setup and pace control and all that kind of stuff. has been a little bit more hard".

"I wish I was hanging around for the weekend but I'll rest up and get a little bit of work in before going to Augusta". Thomas had the easiest time, a 7-and-5 victory over Francesco Molinari.

The end came for Thomas at 16. "We all start at the same place".

And if you're looking for a Texas connection in what's left of this year's Dell Match Play, the closest one you'll find is in Thomas.

Kisner crushed Englishman Ian Poulter 8 and 6, one of the most one-sided results the tournament's history has seen.

Paul Casey might have had the toughest day: He lost twice.

But despite not feeling 100 percent early on, Thomas has been nothing short of stellar this week at Austin Country Club.

Watson sank a 12-foot birdie to win the first hole against Kisner.

(32) Kisner def. (13) Alex Noren, 19 holes: This turned out to be one of the best-played matches of the entire week, as neither player held more than a 1-up lead and four straight holes on the front nine were all halved with birdies. His 12-foot birdie putt to win with the 13th again narrowly missed, and the force with which Thomas whipped the putter shaft onto his shoulder showed his frustration. Aphibarnrat has already won a European Tour match play event this year - the World Super 6 in Australia, where he rode his luck to the title.

Garcia swept his group, rallied for a 3-and-1 decision over Xander Schauffele.

Justin Thomas meets Si Woo Kim while England's Tyrrell Hatton beat Brendan Steele in a playoff and now faces Australian Cameron Smith.

McIlroy will at least have the consolation of some desired extra time off before stepping up his bid for a first Masters title at Augusta National, which would make him the sixth player to complete a career Grand Slam.

That was the year the reigning PGA champion - Martin Kaymer - only had to beat Watson to reach No. 1 in the world. He also missed from 15 feet on the next hole. He pushed his lead to 7 up with a birdie on the 10th, but Kisner responded with his first won hole of the day, taking the par-3 11th after draining a 35-foot birdie putt.
