Casey Still on Track

Paul Casey has maintained his challenge for victory in the WGC - Accenture Match Play Championship by defeating compatriot Ross Fisher 2&1 to reach the final. Casey, who amazingly has led for 89 out of the 90 holes he has played, will face Australian Geoff Ogilvy in the 36 hole final later today. It should be an intriguing final as Ogilvy is also playing well, having finished Stewart Cink off impressively in the semi-final with an eagle and three birdies for a 4&2 win. This extends his impressive record in the event, having now made three of the last four finals.

Earlier in the day, Ogilvy had ended young Rory McIlroy's dream of becoming the youngest ever winner on the US PGA Tour with a 2&1 victory in the quarter-finals. Casey comfortably saw off Sean O'Hair at the same stage, Fisher edged out Justin Leonard 2& 1 while Cink put an end to Ernie Els' resurgence by the same margin.
