Nah just watched the live updates on my phone. I assume you say that because Reed never trailed?

Yeah I wouldn't call it a nail biter. Even at the end, he conceded the birdie to tie, because he putted in for birdie. So it was really 3&1.

Spieth started the round by giving Reed two free holes. That didn't help.

Stinks that a lot of the best players are already out or about to be out. Not sure a final between Charles Howell and Kyle Stanley is going to fire me up. Of course, we could get Justin Thomas-Bubba Watson which would be a bit more exciting. Who knows. But match play does become a little boring as you get down to the final 8 and final 4 because there's not a lot of golf to show. And if they're players that don't thrill you, it becomes even more boring. Just glad we only do this once per year.

Man, I have to go to Wikipedia for a proper tennis style draw/bracket?

 

Choose "Bracket" in the pull-down menu on the leaderboard.

Little Rydercup preview: Reed against Noren. Looks like the Euro’s draw first blood. :w00t:

Justin Thomas is on fire, he’s buchering his opponents.

You are entitled to that opinion but I wholeheartedly disagree. All of these guys are tremendous players, I love watching them play. And I love match play, an historic format of tournament golf that we don't get to see nearly enough. During the course of match it can make these top level players play more aggressively than normal and play shots you don't get to see in medal play. This match play tournament is great, I anxiously await it each and every year; and I really miss the old Piccadilly Match Play that used to be an annual event every October at Wentworth.

The course is beautiful, the setting is stunning, the players are elite, & the play is awesome.

I love golf.

Thomas - Watson will be fun to watch. Noren vs either Watson/Thomas would be fun to watch.

Every time Jeffrey Wright comes on in the Dell commercial, I'm thinking, Westworld?

I’m going with Thomas tomorrow. I think he continues to distance himself from the pack and establish himself number one in the OWGR. Which I think he captures if he just wins the semifinal matchup..

Thomas better start turning the heat up or Watson is going to leave him in the dust...

And just like that Thomas is back in it.

I’m rooting for a Thomas - Noren final. Today heard from an other Swede, you have to pronounce Noren as Norein.

Thomas is running out of holes to come back here and had a poor teeshot on 15.

Weird explanation about the drop that Thomas took on his last hole?  He definitely didn’t take full relief?  Not that there was much area for relief.
