Casey advances to final against Poulter
MARANA, Ariz. (AP) -It's an all-England final in the first World Golf Championship of the year.
Paul Casey finally ended the longest match of the week with a par on the 24th hole Sunday morning to beat Camilo Villegas and advance to the final against Ian Poulter in the Match Play Championship.
Villegas hooked his tee shot into the desert and was lucky to find the ball, which was in a bush 4 inches off the ground. He blasted it out into the fairway and wound up making a bogey. Casey chipped to 5 feet and made the putt for par.
Casey then left straight for the first tee for the 36-hole championship match.
Casey and Villegas had exchanged a series of great shots and clutch putts through 23 holes Saturday until twilight made it too dark to continue.
