Marc Leishman and John Senden are through to the round of 16 matches of the 2015 WGC Match Play. But some big names won’t be seeing any weekend action.
Marc Leishman was one of 12 players to go through the round robin stage of the WGC Match Play Championship without losing and will play Gary Woodland in the round of 16 match tomorrow.
John Senden also made his way through undefeated, beating American Brendan Todd in his final match to set up a match against the Hunter Mahan.
Jordan Spieth was unexpectedly knocked out of the tournament after losing his match to Lee Westwood, but world number one and top seed Rory McIlroy has firmed as favourite and will face Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama after he produced a stunning comeback in his match against Billy Horschel to remain undefeated.
The second highest ranked player still left in the tournament was Jim Furyk who earned his spot in the knockout stages courtesy of a 20th hole victory over Martin Kaymer.
