AUSTIN, Texas - A wild day that included scintillating and shabby golf, an early wake-up call and a late slap back to reality ended with Tiger Woods tersely answering questions in the Austin Country Club parking lot, a courtesy auto waiting and a trip home to Florida on his suddenly changed itinerary.
Woods won back-to-back holes with birdies at the fifth and sixth as McIlroy's putting frailties began to show.
Overlooked in all this drama was British Open champion Francesco Molinari, who steamrolled Kevin Na 6 and 5 on his way to the semifinals.
Yet after Woods played out sideways and knocked his third from 205 yards to 25 feet, McIlroy hit an bad second shot.
He previously had won the event three times. Holes led - Kuchar 11, Bjerregaard 0. Woods hit such a poor tee shot to the 17th you began to wonder if it was infectious, but he rattled home a 13ft-putt for a messy par that was good enough.
"I laid up to make sure that I put pressure on (Cantlay) on that tee shot, if he was going to go for it", Woods said.
"It's awesome for the tournament, I think", McIlroy said.
Woods' next match is set for Saturday against Rory McIlroy, who has a chance to return to No. 1 in the world if he wins the tournament.
Playing him or beating him?
A missed putt from four feet on the 18th hole cost Tiger Woods a place in the semi-finals of the WGC matchplay championship at Austin, Texas. He then hit his third shot out of bounds, the hole was lost, and on the 17th he missed a birdie attempt and the American rolled in the match-winning par. McIlroy went into the top edge of a bunker, then over the green against wooden posts, and he lost the hole. After considering a drop, McIlroy took an unplayable lie, had to return to the original spot, found the front bunker and then blasted out - before conceding. McIlroy looked set to level at the 6th when Woods found the fairway bunker, but the American fired a five-wood just short of the green before nearly holing out a superb up-and-down.
Woods then finished the job by coolly sinking the putt to save par.
