Day reaches Match Play quarters



Australia's Jason Day powered past Masters champion Bubba Watson 4 and 3 on Saturday to reach the quarterfinals of the World Golf Championships Match Play Championship.

Day was 3-up heading to the 15th at Dove Mountain, a driveable par-four. Watson ended up conceding the hole to end the match, sending Day into an afternoon quarterfinal conest with Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell.

Former US Open champion McDowell ended Irishman Shane Lowry's dream run with a 3 and 2 third-round victory.

Lowry had toppled world No 1 Rory McIlroy in the first round, then became the first 64th seed to reach the third round in the 15-year history of the event with a convincing 6 and 5 victory over Carl Petterson.

McIlroy led a parade of top seeds out of the tournament in the first two rounds.

Three-time champion Tiger Woods, the world No 2 and second seed, also exited in the first round, while the overall third, fourth and fifth seeds – Luke Donald, Louis Oosthuizen and Justin Rose – all lost in the second.

Defending champion Hunter Mahan made it safely through to the quarters with a 5 and 4 victory over Germany's Martin Kaymer.

Kaymer, runner-up to Donald in 2011, was 2-down after four holes as he was unable to birdie either of the opening par-fives on the course.

Mahan plays reigning US Open champion Webb Simpson, a 2-up winner over Spain's Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano.

Ian Poulter of England advanced with a 5 and 3 victory over South African Tim Clark, setting up a clash with US Ryder Cup foe Steve Stricker – who edged Scott Piercy 1-up.

Robert Garrigus, who ousted former Masters champion Oosthuizen in the second round, advanced with a 3 and 1 victory over Sweden's Fredrik Jacobson.

He next faced fellow American Matt Kuchar, who beat Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts 4 and 3.
