- World number one Rory McIlroy and England's Paul Casey battled to a standstill in the $9.25 million WGC-Championship Match Play in California Saturday and face a dawn start to resume their match for a place in the last four. In near-darkness at Harding Park, the two European stars finished all square after 21 holes and will continue their sudden death battle on Sunday morning at 6:45 am. McIlroy missed a six foot birdie putt to snatch victory on the third sudden death hole leaving Casey relieved. "I dodged a couple of bullets," Casey said. "It was good, it was back and forth," McIlroy said. "I had a couple of opportunities ... but I couldn't quite convert."
