Bubba Watson routs Kevin Kisner to win WGC-Dell Match Play

The 39-year-old won the Masters twice (2012 and 2014) and just picked up his 10th-career PGA Tour victory at the Genesis Open in February. "And I've been trying to figure out how to get back to that level, and I've been trying different things".

"I played solid enough to win all of these matches, and it was nice to do so", Thomas told the Golf Channel after dominating Francesco Molinari 7 & 5 on Friday.

Poulter had carded seven birdies in the morning's last-16 clash with Louis Oosthuizen but could not find a single one as Kisner charged into the semis - ending the Englishman's dreams of a Masters place in the process.

Thomas made quick work of Si Woo Kim to win on the 13th hole Saturday morning, and then he pulled away from Kyle Stanley in the afternoon by winning three straight holes to start the back nine that carried him to a 2-and-1 victory.

Favorites to win the Masters seemingly change on a week-to-week basis. I'll just chill out, rest up a little bit, recharge the batteries, get into the gym. It's hard to remember a time - recently, at least, when we've had this much pure talent all on top of their game at the same time.

It took three holes before Patrick Reed had to putt. Regardless, he played nine holes in a practice round on Monday in front of a very small gallery - and it wasn't pretty.

Americans Justin Thomas and Bubba Watson are set for a heavyweight showdown at the WGC-Dell Match Play after winning their quarterfinals in Texas Saturday.

Thomas went into the water from an awkward lie on the par-5 12th, pitched to 6 feet and had a chance to escape with a halve and remain 2 down.

Watson, the 2012 and 2014 Masters victor, seeks his 11th US PGA crown just five weeks after a victory at Riviera and with this year's Masters set to open April 5 at Augusta National. He had no response to an impressive Harman, who plays fellow left-hander Bubba Watson in the last 16.

Kevin Kisner sank a 10-foot birdie at the last to beat Matt Kuchar 1-up in an all-American battle, while Australian 46th seed Cameron Smith upset English 12th seed Tyrrell Hatton 2&1. A 12-foot putt for eagle at the 12th dropped, giving him a 3 up lead coming home.

Kisner remarkably stayed in the match early, making a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 3 and a 20-foot birdie putt on No. 5, both times halving the holes with Noren in closer range for his birdies. With the match all square, Noren made a 10-foot birdie at the 17th to go 1 up, and then holed a 15-foot par putt on the final hole to avoid going to a playoff with Finau.
