WGC Dell Matchplay



Hello folks, its the final session of the World Golf Championship Dell Matchplay tournament from the Austin Country Club, Bubba Watson and Kevin Kisner will battle it out for the title, I'm Chris Rolfe and i'll be taking you through all the action of the final and the 3rd/4th place play off

The Kisner/Noren match has only just finished and it was a classic, so disapointing to see it decided on a mistake by the Swede, meanwhile the other semi final was a masterclass by Bubba against one of the best players on the planet right now and Alex Noren will battle with Justin Thomas for a third place finish

I'll be back when the final two matches start, should be two crackers

Here we go, the consolation match is on the first tee, JT slaps his drive into the rough on the right of the fairway while Noren finds the center of the fairway

JT is tucked in close to a tree but has a shot, doesn't do very well and finds the greenside bunker, Noren finds the green but he still has around 20 feet for the birdie

Kisner and Bubba are heading to the first tee, this should be cracker, two players who were underdogs in their semi's but overcame the odds and now have the chance to become a WGC Champion

JT flies the green out of the bunker on the first and has to settle for a bogey and that allows Noren to go 1up with a simple two putt

Similiar start to the 2nd hole, Noren just hanging onto the fairway while JT drifts into the right rough as Kisner and Bubba are introduced onto the tee

Kisner with a beauty, shaves with danger but it bounces off the slope into the fairway, Bubba booms one equally as beautifully but about 40 yards further, advantage Bubba

Turns out both of the drives found the rough in the consolation final, Noren comes up just short of the green on 2 while JT finds the green but hes a mile away from the hole
