Match Play Championship Glance


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

Match of the day: Rory McIlroy beat Bae Sang-moon 3 and 2. McIlroy took the lead with a birdie on the par-5 11th, won the par-5 13th with a conceded birdie and took a 3-up lead with a birdie on the par-4 15th.

Semifinal pairings: McIlroy vs. Lee Westwood, Hunter Mahan vs. Mark Wilson.

No. 1 at stake: McIlroy and Westwood can take the spot in the world from Luke Donald with a victory in the championship match.

Shot of the day: Mahan holed a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-4 ninth to take a 5-up lead in his 6-and-5 victory over Matt Kuchar.

Key stat: The Mahan-Wilson semifinal guarantees there will be an American in the championship match for the first time since 2008.

Quoteworthy: "Rory said to me before I went out, 'See you tomorrow morning.' And then today again there he said, 'See, told you.' That's the trouble with kids nowadays, they think they're always right, don't they?" -- Westwood.
