SAN FRANCISCO – The buzz at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play on Saturday continued to be the nose-to-nose confrontation between Keegan Bradley and Miguel Angel Jimenez on Day 3.
Playing the final hole of a virtually meaningless match, Bradley and Jimenez had a dispute over a drop the American was taking.
After a heated exchange on the course, the two players – who both lost their first two matches and could not advance to the weekend – took the argument to the locker room and the dispute remains unsettled.
While both players downplayed the event, some applauded their passion.
“I love it,” said Gary Woodland, who advanced to Sunday’s Final Four with a victory over John Senden in the quarterfinals. “I wish there was more of that out here. It's nice because you've got two guys that obviously there was a lot on the line. Obviously they were frustrated by the way things were going. And nobody wanted to let up.
“But the key was they both fought for what they believed in.”
