42-seed Bill Haas outlasted 46-seed Kevin Na 1 UP in Round of 16 action at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will face 14-seed Phil Mickelson (4-0-0) in the quarterfinals later this afternoon, while Na departs with a 2-2-0 overall record.

Haas was the Group 11 winner (2-1-0), advancing out of the Group Stage with a 6-hole playoff win, while Na was the Group 6 winner with the same record and also in sudden death. For the first time this week, Haas had to go the distance, with neither opponent reaching more than a 2 UP advantage, which is where Haas found himself thru nine holes. On the inward half, Na battled back to all square, winning the 13th and 14th with birdie-3s, but the Wake Forest alum won 15 with par and that's where the match would end with each players finishing with a final birdie at 16 and two pars.

62-seed Soren Kjeldsen sent first-timer and 48-seed William McGirt packing with a 5-and-4 triumph in Round of 16 action at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will face 21-seed Jon Rahm (4-0-0) in the quarterfinals.

The Dane was the improbable Group 2 winner with a perfect 3-0-0 record while McGirt was the surprise winner of Group 15, also unblemished. This match was all square thru four holes, with Kjeldsen taking the par-4 second with par and McGirt leveling with birdie-3 at three from 21'10". The 41-year-old Euro circled the par-4 fifth (5'6") to go 1 UP and never looked back from there. He took a 3 UP lead with pars at eight and nine, went 4 UP with his fourth birdie of the match at the par-5 12th (14'5"), and closed out the 37-year-old North Carolina native with a 46-incher for birdie-3 at 14.

14-seed Phil Mickelson distpached 28-seed Marc Leishman 4-and-3 in Round of 16 action at the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play and will meet the winner of the 42-seed Bill Haas and 46-seed Kevin Na match later this afternoon.

The 46-year-old won Group 14 with a perfect 3-0-0 record while Leishman won Group 3 with a 2-1-0 mark, eventually prevailing in a 3-man playoff. Through four matches thus far, this is the furthest that Mickelson's been tested, but that said, it never was close. The Hall of Famer took a 1 UP lead with birdie at the par-4 third (from 13'2"), went 2 UP at four (concession), and went 3- and 4 UP, respectively, with a par-birdie finish to the first nine. He went 5 UP thru 10 (another concession), gave two holes back at 11 and 12, the former to the Aussie's second birdie of the match (par-4 fifth), but closed him out at hole 15 with a third concession of the match.

In the first match to be decided in the Round of 16 at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, 21-seed Jon Rahm knocked out 61-seed Charles Howell III 6-and-4 to advance to the quarterfinals.

Rahm was the Group 7 winner with a 3-0-0 record while Howell III won Group 10 with a 2-1-0 mark, prevailing in a 3-man playoff. Rahm took an early 2 UP lead with a 20'3" birdie-3 at two and 27-footer to circle the par-3 fourth. He gave one hole back with a concession at the par-5 sixth, but won the ninth on concession to turn 3 UP. The Spaniard circled the 10th and 12th, both from inside of six feet to go 4- and 5 UP, respectively, and then closed out the elder Howell III with a 4'7" birdie at the par-4 14th. Rahm, who closed out Sergio Garcia yesterday by the exact same margin, will meet the winner of the 48-seed William McGirt and 62-seed Soren Kjeldsen match later this afternoon.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 82 and pre-tourney co-fave Graeme McDowell bogeyed his final three holes en route to a 1-under-par 32-39=71 and at 2-under 71-71=142, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 81 players from a field of 130 pros and two amateurs made the cut on 3-under 141 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. McDowell, a 16/1 outright, opened with a four-birdie three bogey 71 and began his second frame with a 4-under bogey-free first half, circling birdies at Nos. 2 and 6 and eagling the par-5 fifth. He came home in 4-over however, outbalancing birdie-3 at 12 with bogeys at 11 and 16-18. Other notable early exits include: 142- Ian Poulter; Matt Jones; Dominic Bozzelli ... 143- Graham DeLaet; 2012 champ George McNeill; Nick Taylor ... 144- Ryo Ishikawa ... 145- Seamus Power; Camilo Villegas ... 146- Andres Romero; Thorbjorn Olesen ... 150- Brandon Hagy.

First-round leader and World No. 334 Trey Mullinax back-pedaled to an even-par 34-38=72 in the two-day second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 9-under 135, down 10 spots to T11, two back of 36-hole tri-leaders Bryson DeChambeau, D.A. Points, and Bill Lunde.

The PGA TOUR rookie led by one (over Points) with a career-low 63. It was his first 18-hole lead/co-lead in his 15th career start, 12th as a member. The 24-year-old was even-par thru 13 holes on Friday when play was suspended and returned on Saturday morning (with 42 others) to play his final five in even, exchanging birdies at 14 and 18 with bogeys at 16 and 17. After circling nine in R1, he added seven in R2 on just 11 greens in regulation, but cancelled out all of them with five bogeys and double bogey-6 at the 13th just prior to the stoppage.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 1033 Bill Lunde styled a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the two-day second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 11-under 133, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Bryson DeChambeau and D.A. Points.

The 43-year-old is making his 142nd career start on the PGA TOUR with one win to his credit, the now-defunct Turning Stone Resort Championship. He won the final edition of the event in 2010, which was played in Verona, New York, coming from four back with 6-under 66 to win by one over J.J. Henry. The UNLV alum's last full season on TOUR was 2015 when he went 8-for-18 with one top 25 and finished 197th in the FedExCup standings. He was 4-under thru 15 holes on Friday when play was suspended and returned Saturday morning to write down three more pars. The San Diego native found 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, circling Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 12.

Past champ and World No. 178 Alex Cejka fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the two-day second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach 10-under 134, up 13 places on the live leaderboard into an eight-way T4, one back of co-clubhouse leaders Bryson DeChambeau and D.A. Points.

This is the 46-year-old's seventh appearance with three prior top 25s and one top 10, his sudden-death win in 2015. That remains his lone TOUR title in 337 career starts. At the 2015 edition, Cejka led by one after 36 holes (70-67), T5 thru 54 holes with 75, and joined a 5-man playoff with a closing 69. This is his 11th start of the season with one top 25 among six cuts made, a T14 at the Valspar in his most recent start (68-70-72-69). The Las Vegas resident opened with a five-birdie one-bogey 68 and with lift, clean and place in effect for R2, circled six on 14 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation. He got 17 holes completed on Friday, returning on Saturday morning to 2-putt the par-5 18th for a walk-off 4.

The second round of the Puerto Rico Open was suspended at 6:21 pm ET due to darkness with a scheduled resumption of 7:00 am Saturday. UPDATE: Round 2 resumed as scheduled at 7:00 am Saturday and at completion of play, Points is co-leading thru 36 holes with Bryson DeChambeau and Bill Lunde.

A total of 43 players (of 131) were stranded, with the tardiest of them all still with eight holes remaining. A delay earlier in the day (heavy rain) put the festivities back 1 hour and 55 minutes. Points kicked off with 64, in solo 2nd and one back, and was one of the lucky ones to get his second frame into the books. With lift, clean and place in effect, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit all 18 greens in regulation, outpacing a lone bogey-5 at four with birdie-4s at Nos. 2, 5 and 18, adding a 2 at the par-3 16th. That equates to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 for the World No. 634, currently tied with Bryson DeChambeau for the 36-hole clubhouse lead on 11-under 133.

One day shy of his 32nd birthday, Scott Stallings withdrew during the second round of the Puerto Rico Open.

At press time, there has been no word from any sources as to the cause of Stallings' early departure. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he was 1-under-par thru 15 holes, scribbling one birdie and 14 pars, but 4-over total after an opening 77 (three birdies, eight bogeys) when he packed it in. This is the Massachusetts native's third mid-tourney WD in 167 career starts, first since the 2016 CareerBuilder Challenge. He is in the published field at next week's Shell Houston Open so gamers should keep an eye out for any updates.

Dustin Johnson continued his relentless march at the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club in Texas, topping Group 1 with a perfect 3-0-0 record after beating Ryder Cup colleague Jimmy Walker 5-and-3 and advancing to the Round of 16.

Johnson looked set to win this one in record time after powering into a 6-up lead through seven holes. That was a combination of his own excellence (an 11-foot eagle at 6 along with birdies at 1 and 7) and poor play from Walker (bogeys at 2, 4 and 5). Walker avoided further punishment by chipping in to halve No. 8 and repeated the trick for a winning eagle at 12 after he'd birdied 11. The rally cut Johnson's advantage to 4-up with six to play but the No. 1 seed wasn't going to tolerate any further erosion of his lead and halved 14 by draining a 23'3" par putt. That knocked any remaining hope out of Walker, who bogeyed 15 to confirm Johnson's dominant win. Today's victory followed a 3-and-2 success over Martin Kaymer and 5-and-3 win over Webb Simpson so DJ has yet to play the 17th or 18th holes this week. His last-16 opponent will be 44th seed Zach Johnson.
