The field of 64 at TPC Harding Park has been trimmed to only eight players. See how the quarterfinal matches played out at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship:


(50) Gary Woodland def. (60) John Senden, 5 and 3: Woodland improved to 5-0 this week in style, winning four of the first five holes of the match with birdie and building a 5-up lead through seven holes. Senden didn't make his first birdie of the match until No. 12, and by then it was too late. Woodland advances to Sunday's semifinals, where he will face Willett.

(48) Danny Willett def. (56) Tommy Fleetwood, 4 and 3: In a match of upstart Englishman, Willett grabbed an early advantage with birdies on three of the first five holes. He held a 2-up advantage at the turn and benefited from late stumbles by Fleetwood, who played the final nine holes of the match in 3 over.

(5) Jim Furyk def. (30) Louis Oosthuizen, 4 and 2: Furyk started slowly, allowing Oosthuizen to take a slim lead at the halfway point, but the American caught fire down the stretch. He carded four back-nine birdies in addition to a concession on No. 12, turning a 1-down deficit into an easy victory to continue his quest to win back-to-back titles after capturing the RBC Heritage last month.

(1) Rory McIlroy def. (36) Paul Casey, 22 holes: McIlroy and Casey returned to the course Sunday morning to determine the fourth and final semifinalist. McIlroy hit a beautiful lag from 60 feet that set up a birdie on the par-5 first hole. Casey hit a 3-wood just over the green and into thick rough. Casey flubbed his first chip, then needed to hole his next with any chance to halve the hole (he missed). Casey had McIlroy putt from just over 2 feet for the No. 1 player to advance.
