Here is another reason match play golf is much more interesting to watch than regular stroke play tournaments; drivers off the deck.
Yesterday we saw Sergio Garcia hit driver off the deck to get to the green in two at the WGC Dell Match Play and while we don’t have the same awesome slo-mo footage to watch, Marc Leishman’s driver off the fairway on the same hole today is a thing of beauty.
Unfortunately Leishman could only muster a birdie on the par-5 16th which was matched Pat Perez. Perez went on to win the match 2&1, meaning Leishman will have to rely on Westwood beating Perez tomorrow to force a three-way playoff for a spot in the round of 16 matches.
🚨DRIVER OFF THE DECK🚨
