Kevin Kisner gets redemption with win at WGC Dell Match Play

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Kevin Kisner made it to the Dell Technologies Match Play final for the second straight year, and this time he got it right.
A week that began with a loss ended with the biggest victory of Kisner's career when he beat Matt Kuchar in the championship match Sunday, 3 and 2, at Austin Country Club.
He becomes the first player to win Match Play after losing in the final the previous year. Kisner lost in 12 holes last year to Bubba Watson. At the end of a long, tiring week, he never trailed against Kuchar.
Kisner first had to get by Francesco Molinari in the Sunday morning semifinal, advancing when Molinari three-putted for bogey on the 18th hole.
Kisner is the first player to win Match Play after losing a match during group play, which began in 2015.
