Sergio Garcia defeated Bill Haas 3&1 in the second round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.  Garcia will face Rickie Fowler in the third round.

Garcia was 2-down through seven holes, but rallied with an eagle on eight, a par on eleven, and a birdie on twelve to take a 1-up lead.  After losing the 13th, Garcia won three of the next four holes to close out the match 3&1.

Garcia did not like the way he started, but he fought hard, and hit good shots down the stretch:

For a minute, I thought he had me with the way he started, and the couple little mistakes I made on 6 and 7, but then I was able to come back a little bit.

 

Obviously, got a little bit fortunate on 11, when we both hit it a little bit left in the desert, and his ball was in a bush and I had a shot, and I was able to win that hole to go to even.

 

And then I hit some good shots coming in, which helped me put some pressure on him, and see what he could do.
