Johnson to face Tanihara in WGC Match Play semifinals

Although Woods has 18 WGC titles to his name, he never won the WGC-HSBC Champions and, after victory at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, Johnson now has five WGC titles and the "WGC slam".

Johnson still looked to be headed for a comfortable victory in getting back to 4-up with a winning birdie at 12 but Rahm had not read the script and proceeded to birdie 13, 15 and 16, and after each pared the par three 17th, heading down the last 1-down.

While Johnson held a sizable lead over Rahm for most the day - he was four-up through six and five-up through eight before Rahm cut that lead to two - the two put on a very entertaining match off the tee.

Spaniard 21st seed Jon Rahm and American 42nd seed Bill Haas will meet in the other semi. He was 4 up with six to play but wasn't unnerved when Rahm won three of the next four holes, closing out with a par on the final hole.

His recent schedule hasn't been full, but it's been intense with major-like events. But I'll probably - I'll get there Tuesday night, I would imagine, if I'm going to go.

The meeting took place in the Kremlin with Le Pen "gesticulating energetically across the table from a disengaged-looking Mr. The president of the Duma (lower house of the Parliament), Viacheslav Volodin, also met with the ultranationalist candidate.

At the par-five 16 both players hit bad tee shots way right of the fairway but Rahm's ball found a awful spot behind some trees in deep rough. "Ask me that in the morning when I wake up. And I'm definitely proud of the way I hung in there and played tough and just tried to never give away holes, which I felt like I did a pretty good job of that". I've won my last three but I'm just going to have to keep working hard, keep working on things.

The inclusion of Tanihara and Fisher brings the total number of Masters invitees to 94, with one final spot still available to the victor of next week's Shell Houston Open. Johnson won the Genesis Open in February and the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship earlier this month.

The withdrawal is not all that surprising, especially considering what Johnson said Sunday evening in Austin: "I don't know".

Johnson again made a mess of a routine second into the 15th and lipped out for par, but he escaped with a half as Tanihara also failed to get up-and-down. Johnson's win in the final match came against the rising star, and future Ryder Cup match-play threat, Jon Rahm.

"I like match play".
