AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm advanced to the semifinals of the Dell Technologies Match Play and kept on track a potential showdown between the No. 1 player and Spain's rising star.
Johnson lost a 3-up lead at the turn and for the first time in 71 holes of this event, he was in a match that was all square. He answered with two birdies and put away Alex Noren.
Rahm was so dominant in two matches Saturday that he ended them both on the 14th hole. The 22-year-old rookie has yet to play the 18th hole at Austin Country Club.
Johnson faces Hideto Tanihara in the semifinals. Rahm plays Bill Haas, who eliminated Phil Mickelson in the quarterfinals, 2 and 1.
