Casey eliminated with 2 losses in Match Play

Justin Thomas missed out on the chance to become world number one after losing to Bubba Watson in the semi-finals of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Garcia got beat 3 and 1 by Kyle Stanley, which means the final seven matches will feature just one golfer (Thomas) ranked in the top 15 in the world.

The other semifinal will pit Alex Noren against Kevin Kisner. Sharma did win the 16th with his fourth birdie of the day, but Schauffele closed the match on 17th with a par as Sharma bogeyed.

Having missed from five feet to lose that par five, he squandered an opportunity to win the next hole from slightly further away. He won twice previous year on the Tour.

"I was planning of going out of the country for a few days with the family as my son has a spring break", said Watson. "I'm excited about it - it should be good".

But Watson responded with a birdie at 10 before he went three up with six to play when Thomas tugged his second shot into water at the 12th and ran up a bogey-six.

Harman will face Bubba Watson in the last 16 after the two-time Masters champion birdied the final two holes to halve his match with Julian Suri. I was two under on the back nine and trying to press but Brian just played really, really well.

"But at the end of the day, obviously I didn't play very well, but I definitely didn't give him the match".

College Basketball Odds: Loyola-Chicago, Florida State Underdogs Saturday
MI won its second round game to reach the Sweet 16 on freshman Jordan Poole's long 3 in the closing seconds against Houston. Townes drilled the clutch 3-pointer with 6.2 seconds to go to make it a four-point margin as Loyola-Chicago closed it out.

"The last three years I've played well, not well enough, and hopefully I put the last piece of the puzzle in there this year and get it done".

The 28-year-old credited former PGA Tour pro Brad Faxon for inspiring his magic with the flatstick, but also admitted that Wayne Rooney played a small but pivotal role, too, even if the former Manchester United striker knew nothing about it. Noren is now playing Australia's Cameron Smith, who beat Tyrrell Hatton 2&1.

"I haven't had such a hard time not thinking about something so much".

"You have to give (Thomas) the edge (Sunday), but this course is made for Bubba", NBC golf analyst and two-time U.S. Open victor Johnny Miller said.

"I wish I was hanging around for the weekend, but I'll rest up and get a little bit of work in before going to Augusta", McIlroy said.

Kisner sank a five-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole to dispatch Noren.

Mickelson, who lost to Charles Howell III in the opening round, rallied from 4-down after eight holes and won the last three holes to beat Satoshi Kodaira. I got up this morning and I'm like, 'Man, why does my hamstring hurt?' From working around this hilly golf course.

It's not helping the cause, as Justin Thomas has raced out to a 3-up lead through 12 holes.
