The Latest: Woods advances to round of 16 at Match Play
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Latest on the Dell Technologies Match Play (all times local):
Jordan Spieth lost the first four holes and never quite recovered.
Bubba Watson, the only player in Group 15 with nothing to gain, held on for a 1-up victory that eliminated Spieth from the Match Play. Right behind them, Kevin Na took control late and knocked out Billy Horschel.
Spieth and Horschel needed to win or halve their matches to go to a sudden-death playoff. Instead, both lost, and Na is the one who heads into the weekend knockout stage.
Spieth has only made it out of group play once since the Match Play has been at Austin Country Club. That was in 2016, the first year.
