Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark made seven birdies and two bogies during his match against Henrick Stenson of Sweden to win 3&2 and advance to the quarterfinals of the Dell Match Play World Golf Championship.
Bjerregaard birdies the first, fourth, sixth and seventh holes and turned at two up. He went on to make three more birdies on the back nine and win after 16 holes.
On paper Stenson was the favorite because of the more impressive resume. And, although he has not played well this season appeared to be on form as he posted seven birdies in 14 holes with no bogies in his match on Friday. But, today he made only three birdies to go with two bogies. Golf is a fickle game and today was Bjerregaard’s day.
Bjerregaard advances to the quarterfinals and will play Tiger Woods in the afternoon match.
