Picking the final four at the Match Play Championship
Jason Day vs. Rickie Fowler and Ernie Els vs. Victor Dubuisson. Who you got?
Semifinal No. 1, Rickie Fowler vs. Jason Day: How much fun is this match going to be?? Two of the most fun, honest, engaging guys on tour going head-to-head for 18 (or more, or less) holes. You could talk me into either one but I think Fowler finally hits the Day buzzsaw.
Semifinal No. 2, Ernie Els vs. Victor Dubuisson: How much fun is this match not going to be?? Kidding. It will still be fun, but Els hasn't exactly been that great this week. He's 2 over for the week (to Dubuisson's 10 under) and I think his luck runs out Sunday.
Third-place match, Fowler vs. Els: The Big Easy has to run out of gas at some point, doesn't he? He joked Saturday that he has been cranking water in lieu of beer at the tournament this week. He'll need a few cold ones after being beat twice Sunday.
Final, Jason Day vs. Victor Dubuisson: It feels like most will be rooting for Day in this all-world final but I think Dubuisson takes it. He has conserved mental energy all week (Saturday was the first day he played No. 18) and he'll be ready to roll for 36-plus on Sunday.
