The 2023 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play continues on Saturday afternoon with the Quarterfinal matches at Austin Country Club. You can find full Quarterfinal tee times and matchups at the bottom of this post.
Featured match for Quarterfinals
Three of Saturday morning’s eight matches went all 18 holes, and each one featured a player in the afternoon session’s top matchups.
Lucas Herbert hung with Rory McIlroy all round and forced him to the 18th hole by way of a 31-foot bomb on 17. Nevertheless, McIlroy nearly repeated his heroics from Thursday, when he drove the green and had three feet for eagle, while Herbert laid up in the bunker. McIlroy made an easy birdie (his ninth of the round) to set up the 2 Up win.
That sets up a heavyweight matchup between World No. 3 McIlroy and seventh-ranked (sixth-seeded) Xander Schauffele who dispatched J.J. Spaun 3 and 2 in the morning. It’s also a rematch of Singles Sunday from the 2021 Ryder Cup, when McIlroy defeated Schauffele 3 and 2.
The other marquee match features Scottie Scheffler vs. Jason Day. The defending champion, Scheffler, had to battle back from 2 Down on the back nine to eventually defeat J.T. Poston 1 Up.
Day, the 2016 WGC-Match Play winner, took Matt Kuchar to the final hole as well but survived when Kuchar’s birdie try from off the green came up short
Scheffler and McIlroy are on opposite sides of the bracket, so the only way they’ll face each other is if they make it to the final match Sunday afternoon.
Scheffler and Day tee off at 1:50 p.m. ET, while McIlroy and Schauffele start at 2:05 p.m. ET.
