WGC Dell Match Play Semifinals Ready to go Sunday

Should Rahm keep his hot streak flaming into the final, there's a chance he'll get to test his mettle against not only one of the best golfers in the world, but the very best at the moment: world No. 1 Dustin Johnson.

This is rare territory for Mickelson, 46, who has played in 13 Match Play events, but only once on the weekend, when he lost to Davis Love III in the quarter-finals of the 2004 event.

Several sudden-death playoffs were needed to decide who advanced after deadlocks in group play, the first of them to be decided going to American Kevin Na, who birdied the first playoff hole to down England's Matthew Fitzpatrick.

Johnson won the first three holes against Noren and was still ahead by the same margin at the turn, only to bogey the 10th and 11th and lose the next to a birdie.

Players are just absolutely nuking their drives on the par-5 hole.

"Emiliano and I were just like, 'What do we do?' Walking up 18, we could have just called it a half and not even bothered", McIlroy said. I have been on the good end of it. "Anything can happen. I'm playing good golf right now".

Rahm continues to be one of the most impressive players here this week. On Saturday, he took down Paul Casey with two late birdies in the morning fourth round, and then he beat Ross Fisher, 4 and 2, to reach the semifinals.

Rahm has not trailed at any point in his five matches this week at Austin Country Club and was three up on Kjeldsen after six holes, aided by an eagle on the par-five sixth. "I felt my confidence was growing".

"He hits the ball a long way", Haas said. "Today my putter was rolling, too".

Rahm's hot play shouldn't surprise anyone; he won his first career PGA Tour event at the Farmers Insurance Open in January and almost won the WGC Mexico Championship, where he finished third earlier this month.

After completing a 5&4 victory with back-to-back birdies at 13 and 14, the top seed then raced three up after three holes against Noren, who had earlier beaten Brooks Koepka 3&1. En route to a 3-0 record in group play, McGirt hit only 52.83 percent of greens in regulation but scrambled to save par on 22 of 25 occasions.

But the 5-foot-7, 143-pound Dane ran into bigger trouble in the quarterfinals of the World Golf Championships - Dell Technologies Match Play. Although he didn't advance, Ryan Moore was the only player in the field to halve all three matches in group play.
