Sergio Garcia was all square through 16 holes of his match against Ryan Moore on Day 2 of the WGC-Dell Match Play. It appeared Garcia would go 1 up with one to play after hitting his tee shot on the par-3 17th inside 6 feet and Moore missed the green long. But then, as match-play nature would have it, Moore chipped in for birdie. Garcia matched him, but lost the match when Moore stuffed his approach shot on 18 to 2 feet.
Garcia hit a 330-yard tee shot at the last and had only 34 yards to the hole for his second. He butchered that shot, however – his low-runner running off the green. He got up and down for par.
Garcia is now 1-1 in pool play. Moore is 1-0-1. In the other portion of the pool, Lee Westwood defeated Marc Leishman, 1 up. Westwood is 1-1 and Leishman is 0-1-1.
If Moore defeats Westwood on Friday, he will advance to the Round of 16.
