Trick shot can't save Tiger Woods in loss

Posted March 30, 2019

Justin Rose sympathised with opponent Eddie Pepperell after snatching an unlikely half from the jaws of defeat to maintain control of his own destiny on day two of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The 64-player showdown at Austin Country Club uses a round-robin format to determine 16 players for a weekend knockout event to decide a champion, although it's a format untested until this year by Woods, who qualified for the first time since 2013. "[Some players don't] tee off for another hour, so that would have been a bigger challenge", said Woods, whose Day 3 match ended on the 16th hole.

Others with a ideal record after two matches include British Open champion Francesco Molinari, major winners Henrik Stenson and Jim Furyk, and "Mr 62" Branden Grace, the only player to break 63 in a major.

While Wise will need to win his final two matches and get some help in order to advance, Woods is still in the driver's seat.

Woods squared the match by making a 20-footer for birdie at the 11th, went ahead when he birdied the par-5 12th while Cantlay could not match.

And it looked like Woods would go down two holes at the par-3 11th, but he made a 10-footer for par to salvage a tie.

In the four previous years of the pool play format, advancing after a first-day loss has proven hard.

Woods' drive left him an 83-yard approach to the pin, and he hit a ideal shot that landed just a few feet from the cup and spun back into the hole. "It was a match I wanted to win".

"We've played tournaments together, battled each other down the stretch at event, but never in a match-play situation", Woods said.

"That could certainly serve me well not only to the rest of this tournament but as we [go] in the next few weeks".

When Tiger Woods withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this month with an ailing neck, it set in motion a series of consequences. Watson needed to win the 18th against Kevin Na, but his second shot out of the bunker in front of the green came back down the slope and into his footprint. He was 2 down to Brandt Snedeker through seven holes.

Justin Thomas recovered from his opening loss to beat Matt Wallace. "I don't practice when I'm at home, so I can't really expect anything different".
