Tiger Woods crashes out of match play with short miss at 18

Emotions once again get best of Sergio Garcia at WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play

Bjerregaard, meanwhile, ran his approach past the green and had a birdie opportunity to win the match, but missed the putt.

So there wasn't a championship on the line, but there was pressure. and, once again, McIlroy buckled in the face of Tiger Woods, losing 2&1.

McIlroy, who dropped only three holes in three group-stage matches, lipped out on a 3-foot par putt to lose the 10th hole and fall 3-down. McIlroy was poised to tie the match on the 16th hole when he had a short iron for his second into a par five and made seven.

The 14-time major champion missed more birdie chances at the next two holes as McIlroy clung on, only for Woods to finally make the first move with a gain at the fifth from four feet.

It was the sort of shot that golfers can only dream of making, and one that proved that the American still has that incredible shot-making ability that took him to the top of the game in the early 2000s. Sergio had about a 10-footer, I think, for par. Felt like I didn't give him any holes. "It's something I used to do very well way back when and it's awesome how you instinctively get good at things and then you stop being good at things as well". Successive birdies at the 12th and 13th helped McIlroy cut the gap to one before a messy 16th hole from the Northern Irishman ended his chances of progressing.

"We've played tournaments together, battled each other down the stretch at events, but never in a match-play situation", Woods said.

Emotions once again get best of Sergio Garcia at WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play

And he did in electrifying fashion - sinking an 82-yard eagle on the 13th hole at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship golf tournament in Austin, Texas, on Friday to advance to weekend play.

Woods had been excellent on the greens all week, but he missed three crucial short putts against Bjerregaard in the quarterfinal.

McIlroy hit back at the 12th after reaching the fringe of the green in two at the par-five, rolling his 40-foot eagle putt to tap-in range to register his first birdie of the match and cut the gap to two holes.

Woods ended the match after McIlroy almost holed a long birdie putt at the 17th. Woods, buried in a bunker off the tee, hit his third shot before McIlroy had to hit his second.

"Just before I take the putter head away, just a little bit of an outbreath to relax", McDowell said. "I'm going to have to keep doing that tomorrow if I want to try and win".

McDowell had six birdies, two bogeys and a par on the front nine in mostly calm conditions with occasional showers, then birdied four of the first six holes on the back nine.
