McIlroy Marches On

Rory McIlroy continued his impressive American debut in the WGC - Accenture Match Play Championship yesterday. McIlroy easily defeated Tim Clark, who seemed to have shot his bolt against Tiger Woods in the previous round. McIlroy now faces Australian Geoff Ogilvy in the quarter finals, the highest ranked player left in the field.

Ernie Els, something of a match play specialist, also progressed in what has been a disappointing season for him to date. Phil Mickelson bit the dust though, falling to Stewart Cink in what seemed to be a battle between two players who didn't want to win at one point!

Paul Casey looked very impressive in his win against Swede Peter Hanson as did his compatriot Ross Fisher in his victory over Jim Furyk. As the only Europeans left in the event, we here at the ever partisan Golf Predictor hope one of the English men or McIlroy wins on Sunday!
