Match 63: Jason Day v. Victor Dubuisson
It’s a battle between two youngsters for the title at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.
Jason Day, 26, is the more experienced player. He has been a member of the PGA Tour for six years, and Dubuisson, 23, is playing in his fourth PGA Tour event. However, they both have one career victory on their respective tours.
Day won the 2010 HP Byron Nelson Championship for his first and only PGA Tour victory. He also has six second-place finishes.
Dubuisson has been a member of the Euro Tour since 2011, and broke through last year with a win at the Turkish Airlines Open in November.
Day is currently 1-up through three holes. Dubuisson got off to a shaky start, but he just birdied the third hole to cut the deficit to one.
Day is one of the toughest players on Tour, but Dubuisson has not been intimidated by anyone this week. Perhaps, he intimidates his opponents.
Match 64: Ernie Els v. Rickie Fowler
The consolation match may not seem important, but anytime two competitors tee it up, they play to win. In addition, there is a $100,000 difference between 3rd and 4th place. The competition is incentive enough, but the extra money ain’t bad.
Fowler is currently 2-up through five holes.
