Bubba Watson v Kevin Kisner in World match-play final

News from the semi-finals at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club, Texas:

Bubba Watson bt Justin Thomas, 3 and 2
Justin Thomas will have to wait to be World No. 1. If Thomas had won this match, he would have gone to the top of the tree. But Watson denied him. Bubba won the opening hole with a birdie, and led the entire match.
 A birdie-eagle run at Nos. 5-6 put him well in front, as he was 3 up after draining a 25-footer for eagle at the sixth. Thomas won Nos. 7 and 9 to move to just one down, but Watson won the 10th with a birdie to push back 2 up. Thomas hit his second shot in the water at the par-5 12th, allowing Watson to win the hole with par. Watson remained 3 up after halves at Nos. 13-15.
 Watson had 3 feet for birdie at No. 16 while Thomas was faced with a 22-footer. Thomas had to drain his birdie putt to have any chance, and he did. But Watson then cleaned up for birdie to halve the hole and seal a 3-and-2 win. He’s now onto the final.
