Share This Story



Azahara Munoz (Atha-HAR-uh Moon-yoth) of Spain and veteran Candie Kung have advanced to the title match in the Sybase Match Play Championship Sunday.

Munoz won the last three holes to post a 2 and 1 win over 15th-seeded Morgan Pressel in another upset in this surprised-filled event at the Hamilton Farm Golf Club. The 24-year-old NCAA champion who is looking for her first LPGA Tour win was 2 down after nine holes. The 19th seed won four holes on the back nine with three coming on either bogeys or worse by Pressel, who was seeking her first win since 2008.

The 49th-seeded Kung, who hasn't won since 2008, built a 3-up lead after 12 holes before securing the win with a birdie at No. 17.

The title match is Sunday afternoon.
