Hideto Tanihara beat Japanese compatriot Yuta Ikeda 3-and-1 at the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club, winning Group 5 with 2.5pts and confirming the exit of fifth-seeded Jordan Spieth.
Tanihara's victory over Spieth on day one and halved match with Ryan Moore yesterday meant he controlled his own destiny. And he rendered the Spieth v Moore match (eventually halved) meaningless after beating his higher-seeded countryman today. Tanihara (54) took the lead against Ikeda (37) with a kick-in birdie at 2 and, after the next was shared in birdie-2s, doubled his advantage with another circle at 6. The match lacked quality from there as Tanihara won the 8th with bogey to go 3-up while Ikeda's only wins were with pars at 10 and 14. Tanihara won 12 to keep daylight between him and his rival and closed out victory with a winning birdie at 17 from 13'11". This surprise group win for the World No. 60 sets up a Round of 16 clash with England's Paul Casey. Mar 24 - 4:04 PM
