Cameron Young will face Sam Burns in the finals of WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, after the duo survived shock wins Rory McIlroy And Scottie Scheffler.
Young recovered three points and two points behind to play to beat McIlroy in the first extra hole of their semifinals, while Burns needed 21 holes to eventually beat champion and world number one Scheffler.
McIlroy stayed behind after making a bogey in third, but returned to the fifth, sixth and ninth for a two-hole lead on the turn.
Both players smashed into 11th place before McIlroy fired his second shot at the 12th par-five into the water from a lawn bunker to see his lead cut in half.
However, McIlroy took an aggressive hit in the short 13th set, keeping two ahead until Young combined par-five 16th.
Young also put together an 18th to force the extra pits, and then the 25-year-old’s first extra pit, a par-five 12, even though he had to dash out of a grassy bunker with his second shot to drop him 170 yards from the hole.
McIlroy couldn’t turn his own bird kick from nine feet and no doubt didn’t like having to compete with Scheffler in the third/fourth place playoff.
In the first semi-final, Burns got off to a fast start with a birdies hat-trick to open a three-hole lead, but hoped for fifth after a faulty drive, and then Scheffler combined sixth and eighth to return to level requirements. .
The other birds in the ninth and 10th rows gave Scheffler a two-hole lead before Burns scooped up the 13th and 15th rows to return to the whole square as Burns hoped for both holes.
Burns nearly took the edge off his 17th-place tee shot, but Scheffler smashed the 18th-row together to keep the game alive, with both players hitting the first extra hole.
Scheffler missed by three feet on the 13th, and Burns took full advantage and entered a dramatic victory at 15 feet on the 14th.
