Rory McIlroy, Hunter Mahan Reach Final in World Match Play Golf

Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Rory McIlroy will play Hunter Mahan in today’s final of golf’s World Match Play Championship.

McIlroy of Nothern Ireland beat England’s Lee Westwood 3-and-2, while Mahan defeated fellow American Mark Wilson 2-and-1 in this morning’s semifinals at the Ritz Carlton’s Dove Mountain course in Marana, Arizona.

Westwood led by three after four holes. McIlroy tied the match by the eighth hole and took the lead for good with a birdie at the next. He stretched the advantage to three holes after 13 and sealed the win when Westwood had a bogey at No. 17.

Mahan won the first two holes and never lost the lead against Wilson.

McIlroy will replace England’s Luke Donald as No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking if he beats Mahan in the final.
