In a nail-biting match, Rory McIlroy emerged victorious over Lucas Herbert in the last 16 of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, securing his spot in the quarter-finals. Unable to shake off the tenacious Australian, McIlroy was neck and neck with Herbert until the very end, when Herbert’s errant drive allowed McIlroy to clinch a 2-up win with a perfectly executed chip-up close to the green.
In another dramatic match, Scottie Scheffler rallied back from two points behind to overcome JT Poston, securing his place in the quarter-finals. Scheffler will now face off against Jason Day, who defeated the talented Matt Kuchar in his match.
