Sixty-four golfers began the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play event at Austin (Texas) Country Club on Wednesday. Yahoo Sports will stream PGA Tour Live’s featured holes coverage of the round-robin portion of the event on Friday from 4-8 p.m. ET on our Golf page. Only two golfers have qualified for the Sweet 16 so far — Alex Noren and Soren Kjeldsen.
Cristie Kerr, Mo Martin and In Gee Chun each shot a 6-under 66 Thursday to share the lead after the opening round of the Kia Classic at Aviara. Kerr, the 2015 Kia champion, and Martin, a native of Southern California, were among the first groups to tee off. Kerr's round would have been better if not for putts lipping out on the first two holes, including a 2-footer on No. 2 that left her with her only bogey.
Jason Day conceded his match at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play to Pat Perez on Wednesday after six holes, withdrawing from the tournament to spend time with his mother, Dening, who he revealed is battling lung cancer. “My mom has been here for a while, and she has lung cancer,” a tearful Day said after pulling out of his match. An Australian doctor diagnosed Dening with terminal lung cancer at the start of the year, giving her 12 months to live.
