Sergio García, in eighths against Grace; there will be a Tiger-McIlroy

Borriol is the only Spaniard who survives in the match-play World of Austin. Jon Rahm and Cabrera Bello were eliminated in group stage.


Sergio Garcia is the only Spanish survivor in the match-play World of Austin (Texas). Despite the fact that on the third day he fell to Patrick Reed (2 and 1), Borriol was the first of the group 16 and claimed his two victories (against Lowry and Putnam) in which he exhibited a very high level of golf, with your best game version from tee to green. It has earned him to reach the round of direct confrontations in which the South African Branden Grace awaits him, who alighted in the 'group of death' to Dustin Johnson, world number one, and Matsuyama.

Sergio, a specialist in direct confrontations as shown in the Ryder (is the player with the most points), has its best result in this tournament in the fourth place of 2010. It will be the Spanish hope after Jon Rahm paid dearly the defeat in the second game against JB Holmes. At Rahmbo he had the option of beating Kuchar in the last match, but the American was rocky as usual and endured a draw. vizcaíno bid farewell to a tournament in which he had been second in 2017.

Cabrera Bello also reached the final shock with limited options (lost to Hatton and tied with Westwood) and, however, drew his entire caste against a talent as Schauffele to which won by one up. A victory that did not give to reach Hatton, but that claimed to Rafa as a great match-play player.

The match-play is a cruel format, which does not understand the world ranking and so in this World Cup has become a scam in the top-ten: Dustin Johnson, Koepka, Rahm, Justin Thomas ... they're out. And in the second round there will be a spectacular duel: Rory McIlroy-Tiger Woods.

These are the eighth clashes that are known so far:

Bjerregaard (Din) -Stenson (Sue)

McIlroy (IrN) -Tiger Woods (USA)

Kuchar (United States) -Hatton (Ing)

Sergio García-Grace (RSa)

Leishman (Aus) -Oosthuizen (RSa)
