Keegan Bradley smoothed an 8-under-par 31-32=63 in his second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to move the 36-hole clubhouse lead to 12-under 130.

Perhaps inspired by friend and mentor, Phil Mickelson, Bradley circled an eagle and seven birdies to offset a lone bogey at TPC Scottsdale today. His longest conversion of the round measured 20'10" for birdie at the 11th hole, but it was a sick run near the end of the his round that jumps off the page. He linked four consecutive birdies beginning at the fifth hole. Their distances in order were as follows: 12'3", 14'6", 17'3" and 10'3". It's worth mentioning that he opened with a bogey-free 67 that included four birdies. This is his first notable success since sharing fourth place at the 2013 lid-lifter at Kapalua. He followed that performance with a T49 at Waialae and a missed cut last week at Torrey Pines.

With the match all square thru 21 holes, the last quarterfinal of the day between Paul Casey and Rory McIlroy was suspended at 8:00 p.m. PT due to darkness.

For the second match in as many days, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy rallied in the closing stages to force extra time, this time against the No. 36 seed Paul Casey. Unlike yesterday however, with McIlroy claiming a hard-earned win over Billy Horschel in 20 holes, darkness fell upon TPC Harding Park and stranded the duo after they halved the par-4 16th in pars. The match is scheduled to resume tomorrow at 6:45 a.m. PT. The winner will face Jim Furyk in the semifinals.

Jim Furyk eliminated Louis Oosthuizen 4-and-2 in the quarterfinals of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship and awaits the winner of the Rory McIlroy, Paul Casey match.

Furyk trailed 1-down over the span of five holes in the middle portion of the match but caught fire on the back nine with four birdies in seven holes to dispatch the South African with ease. After trailing 1-down early on, Oosthuizen moved to a 1-up lead with birdie on the fifth, and had his chances to increase the lead on Nos. 6, 8 and 9 but could never take advantage. Furyk seized the opportunity with birdie on 10 to get back to all square and after the duo exchanged pars on 11, Furyk took the lead for good with another birdie at the par-4 12th. A concession at 14 and two additional circles for Furyk at 15 and 16 ended it. This is Furyk's first time to reach the semifinals in 14 starts at the WGC-Match Play.

Danny Willett cruised to a 4-and-3 victory over Tommy Fleetwood in the quarterfinals of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship and will face Gary Woodland in the semifinals.

Willett remained unfazed (and unbeaten) in his WGC-Match Play debut. The 27-year-old is now 5-0 and was not seriously challenged by his fellow Englishman Fleetwood, who was also making his first Match Play appearance. After the pair matched birdies on the par-5 opener, Willett took the 1-up lead with a birdie on No. 3 and quickly moved it to 2-up with par on the fourth. That would be the margin at the turn as each player further squared a bogey against three pars heading to the back nine. Willett added another birdie on the 12th to up the lead to 3-up with six to play. Fleetwood took bogey to lose the 14th (his fourth bogey of the match) and fell to 4-down for the final margin.

Englishman Paul Casey dispatched Charl Schwartzel 3-and-1 in the round of 16 at today's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Casey hasn't qualified for the WGC-Match Play since 2011 but his back-to-back runner-up finishes in 2009 and 2010 proves he's adept at the format. His win over Schwartzel in the round of 16 morning matches moves him to 4-0 and a face off with Jim Furyk in the quarterfinals. All square through the first six holes, Casey would birdie four of his next six holes to catapult to a 4-up lead thru 12. Schwartzel fought back with back-to-back birdies on 14 and 15 to trim the deficit to 2-up, but that would be as close the South African would get and a par-3 on No. 17 was sufficient for Casey to advance.

Rory McIlroy cruised to a 6-and-5 thumping of Hideki Matsuyama in the round of 16 at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship and will face No. 36 seed Paul Casey in the quarterfinals.

McIlroy went undefeated in the round-robin stage and the overall No. 1 seed moved to 4-0 with an anti-climatic elimination of the 23-year-old Japanese star. The 'marquee match' in the round of 16 wasn't much of a contest. After exchanging birdie-4's on the first, McIlroy went 1-up with birdie at the par-3 second (his fifth consecutive par breaker in regulation going back to yesterday's match) and the Northern Irishman never looked back. After Matsuyama squared bogeys on Nos. 6 and 7 to lose each, McIlroy's lead swelled to 5-up when he added his fourth birdie of the match on the par-4 eighth. Matsuyama had a glimmer of hope after he stuck his tee shot to nine inches for a kick-in birdie on the par-3 ninth, but the glimmer was short lived as McIlroy struck back with birdie on 10 to quickly get back to 5-up. A foregone conclusion at this point, the 25-year-old McIlroy added his sixth birdie at the 12th to extend the margin and mercifully, the beating would end at the 13th.

Louis Oosthuizen mustered a 1-up victory over Rickie Fowler in the round of 16 at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship and will face Jim Furyk in the quarterfinals.

Oosthuizen raced to a 3-up lead thru seven, lost the lead entirely seven holes later, and emphatically ended the match with eagle at the par-5 finisher. The 32-year-old South African was in firm control as he stood over a six-foot birdie putt on the par-4 eighth (already 3-up) but needing his putt to drop to halve the hole, and he missed. He had another glorious opportunity at the par-3 ninth, sticking his tee shot to four feet, and again, he missed. Although he did move the lead to 3-up with a birdie-3 on No. 10, the short misses on the two previous holes had given Fowler life and the 26-year-old American grasped the momentum with a birdie on 11 to trim his deficit to 2-down. Oosthuizen's lone bogey on 13 would drop his lead to 1-up and Fowler capitalized again on the momentum shift with a birdie-3 on 14 to get back to all square. Each exchanged pars on 15-17 before Fowler's errant tee shot on 18 led to bogey for the final margin.

Jim Furyk took down J.B. Holmes 5-and-3 in the round of 16 at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Furyk, the Group 5 winner from the round-robin stage, methodically ran over the long-hitting Holmes to advance to the quarterfinals and will face the No. 29 seed Louis Oosthuizen. The 44-year-old exchanged birdies with Holmes on the par-5 opener and a bogey-5 on No. 4 dropped him to 1-down in the early going. His deficit was short lived, as Holmes squared bogey on No. 6 to move the match back to all square. Furyk took his first lead of the match with a par-4 on the eighth and that remained the margin at the turn. Furyk then pounced on Holmes with back-to-back par breakers on 10 and 11 to quickly move to 3-up in the match and added his fourth birdie at the par-3 13th to extend his lead. Holmes' concession on the par-4 15th is how the match would end.

Danny Willett defeated fellow countryman Lee Westwood 3-and-2 in the round of 16 at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Willett continues to surprise as the No. 48 seed and will face yet another Englishman, Tommy Fleetwood, in the quarterfinals. Westwood took the upper hand early with birdie on the par-5 first and maintained that margin through No. 4. Willett got the match back to all square with his first circle on the par-5 fifth. Each recorded birdie-3s on No. 6 and pars on Nos. 7-11 until Willett took his first lead of the match with a par breaker on the 12th. The 27-year-old added another circle on 15 to go 2-up and par on 16 against Westwood's bogey was the final margin.
May 2 - 4:57 PM

Gary Woodland upended Marc Leishman 2-and-1 in the round of 16 at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Woodland, the No. 50 seed, opened with birdie on the par-5 first to go 1-up and never trailed in the match against the No. 56 seed. Both entered the round of 16 undefeated and it was Woodland that emerged to advance to the quarterfinals. A par at No. 2 was sufficient for Woodland to move to 2-up, and he would push that lead to 3-up at 8 when he stuck his approach from 158 yards to 10 inches for the birdie. Leishman fought back with birdies on 9 and 10 and his par breaker on 12 got the match back to all square. Woodland answered back with birdies on the par-4 14th and 15th to go 2-up. The duo traded pars on 17 to end the match. Woodland will play the winner of the Hunter Mahan, John Senden match.

Victor Dubuisson has withdrawn from next week's PLAYERS, according to Garry Smits of The Florida Times-Union.

Good luck trying to figure the Frenchman out. He went 0-3 at the Match Play in what was just his sixth start of 2014-15 in what in his first season with a PGA TOUR card. Now he withdraws from a $10 million tournament for the second straight year. It's highly unusual for a healthy golfer not to play TPC Sawgrass no matter how much he may dislike the track, but Dubuisson has proven to be the anomaly, if that's even logically possible.

In what was easily the best match later in the day, Rory McIlroy defeated Billy Horschel in 20 holes in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Horschel had one hand on the wheel and another on McIlroy's head for most of this battle. The American enjoyed a 1-up lead on all but one hole through 11, and then doubled it with a birdie-3 at the 12th. He gave it right back with a double bogey at the par-3 13th, but McIlroy surrendered the par-4 14th with bogey. After the pair played 15 and 16 par-birdie, McIlroy poured in a 26-footer for birdie at the par-3 17th to begin the comeback. Now 1-down, he added a textbook birdie at the par-5 18th where Horschel fanned on a 12-footer for the win. Both parred the par-5 first the second time through, and then Horschel whiffed on an eight-footer for par at the par-3 second where the match ended, as did his hopes of advancing. McIlroy remains unbeaten this week. Horschel's only loss occurred today.
