Bubba Watson and Kevin Kisner to meet in Match Play final in Texas

Bubba Watson and Kevin Kisner will meet in an all-American final of the WGC-Dell Match Play on Sunday after winning their respective semi-finals in Texas earlier in the day.

Watson beat Justin Thomas 3&2, a result that prevented second seed Thomas from assuming the world number one ranking.

American 32nd seed Kisner outlasted Swedish 13th seed Alex Noren 1-up at the first extra hole in the other semi-final in benign conditions at Austin Country Club.

Noren had a seven-foot birdie putt to win at the 18th hole but he missed it after allowing for too much break.

It was a mistake he lived to regret because Noren subsequently made a complete mess of his long approach putt from off the green at the 19th hole, the par-five 12th, and could not make birdie.

That gave Kisner a chance to win the match with a five-foot birdie, and he sank it dead centre.
