Rickie Fowler once again the star at Match Play Championship
Rickie Fowler is Saturday's headliner at the WGC-Match Play Championship, but Jordan Spieth, Graeme McDowell, and Jim Furyk made appearances, too.
Rickie Fowler, Jason Day, Ernie Els, and Victor Dubuisson moved on to the semifinals in an exciting fourth day of golf from Dove Mountain. Here's your full recap:
Best match: The Rickie Fowler-Jim Furyk one was a pretty wild ride. Fowler was 3 up through 12 but then lost four straight holes only to recover at the very end.
Worst match: Ernie Els over Jordan Spieth 4 and 2. Speith was on tilt all day and never led. He was only all square at three holes and one of them was the first.
Biggest upset: Rickie Fowler won for the fourth straight day over a higher seed. According to PGA Tour Media he could join Kevin Sutherland as the only winner to defeat six higher-seeded players at the tournament.
Best shot: This from Victor Dubuisson was pretty amazing and it was the difference in his match with Graeme McDowell:
Stat of the day: This on Fowler:
