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):

4:00 p.m.

The last three Match Play champions have all been eliminated before the weekend.

Top-seed Dustin Johnson was the only one still in contention to reach the knockout rounds until he was eliminated Friday by Hideki Matsuyama 4-and-2.

Last year’s champion Bubba Watson was eliminated Thursday and so was 2016 champion Jason Day.

Johnson won the tournament in 2017 and but has failed to get out of the round-robin matches the last two years. His tournament started with an easy win over Chez Reavie before losses to Branden Grace and Matsuyama.

Johnson’s loss sends Grace into the round of 16 on Saturday where he’ll play Sergio Garcia. The most recent tournament champion to advance to Saturday’s knockout rounds is 2015 winner Rory McIlroy.
