Matt Kuchar squared off against Robert Garrigus in the quarterfinals of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play and bested the bomber 3 and 2 to win the Hogan Bracket.
Kuchar had control of the match from the start, winning the first hole and never trailing. That may have been the key, as Garrigus had never trailed this week until Kuchar put him down. After taking a 4-up lead, Kuchar had a chance to step on Garrigus' throat on the par-5 11th after the bomber hit his second shot out of bounds, but Kuchar stubbed his toe and halved with bogey. He then dropped the next two, shrinking his lead to two and giving Garrigus life. After winning the par-4 15th, Kuchar slammed the door with a par on the 16th hole. He awaits the winner of the match featuring Jason Day and Graeme McDowell.
