Match Play Championship Glance

Published:

MARANA, Ariz. (AP) -- A glance Thursday at the second round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship:

Match of the day: Steve Stricker holed a curling 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to beat Louis Oosthuizen 1 up. Oosthuizen missed a 10-foot birdie try.

Tiger watch: Nick Watney knocked out Tiger Woods, winning 1 up. Woods missed a 5-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole in a failed bid to continue the match.

Winners: Second-seeded Rory McIlroy, No. 3 Lee Westwood and No. 4 Martin Kaymer. McIlroy beat Anders Hansen 3 and 2, Westwood topped Robert Karlsson 3 and 2, and Kaymer edged David Toms 2 up.

Shot of the day: Hunter Mahan holed out from a bunker on the par-3 sixth to take a 4-up lead in his 5-and-3 victory over Y.E. Yang. Mahan had nine birdies -- the last two conceded -- in 15 holes.

Bragging rights: Seven U.S. players (Stricker, Watney, Mahan, Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker and Mark Wilson) and seven Europeans (McIlroy, Westwood, Kaymer, Peter Hanson, Martin Laird, Paul Lawrie and Miguel Angel Jimenez) advanced to the third round. Australia's John Senden and South Korea's Bae Sang-moon also survived.

Key stat: Woods has failed to advance to the third round since winning the 2008 tournament for the last of his three victories in the event.

Quoteworthy: "I hit it well all day. I didn't make any putts today and, subsequently, I didn't win the match." -- Woods.

Up next: Watney will face Westwood for the third straight year. Watney beat Westwood in the second round the last two years. Lawrie will play Laird in an all-Scottish match, and Stricker will face Ryder and Presidents Cup teammate Mahan.
