New matchplay format not a knockout for Rory
Rory McIlroy want the Volvo World Match Play to return to its knockout roots.
The Holywood hotshot was hammered five up by Masters champion Angel Cabrera last week.
And while that would have seen him eliminated under the old formula in place for 43 years at Wentworth, he’s dead against the round robin format that confused fans watching the action in Spain.
Fisher avoids the lead-filled glove
Not only did he lift the €750,000 top prize to move to fourth in the Race to Dubai, he also lifted huge weight off his shoulders with a victory that could prove to be a major stepping stone in every sense.
Kim to face Fisher for World title
Debutants in the revamped championship, both men will be looking for their first wins for 16 months at Finca Cortesin on the Costa del Sol.
Fisher had to go to the third extra hole to beat Masters champion Angel Cabrera in a thrilling match he should have closed out at the 36th.
McIlroy happy to keep puttering along
The Holywood kid, 20, won two of his three matches but could only finish second in his group behind the impressive Masters champion Angel Cabrera who faces England’s Ross Fisher in today’s semi-finals with Robert Allenby and Anthony Kim squaring off in the other half of the draw.
McIlroy keeps hopes alive
Rory McIlroy won three of the last four holes to beat Simon Dyson 2 up and keep his hopes alive of qualifying for the semi-finals of the Volvo World Match Play in Spain.
A birdie four at the last, combined with Henrik Stenson's 2 up win over Angel Cabrera means that all players in Group C are tied on points with one win apiece.
McIlroy gored by raging bull Cabrera
The Masters champion started in typically skittish form but El Pato became El Toro as the day wore on and the Argentinian combined some impressive power-hitting with the putting skills of an Augusta National winner to cruise to an emphatic victory that leaves the Ulsterman struggling to survive.
Injured Casey cagey over chances
The English ace is desperate to get back on the winning trail after three months on the sidelines with a rib injury.
But he’s not quite 100 percent and vowed that he won’t play on at all costs in the 16-man matchplay showdown at Finca Cortesin.
McIlroy ready to perform
The pressure is on in the Race to Dubai but Rory McIlroy reckons it will only bring out the best in him.
Ranked third in the money list chase, €209,245 behind Westwood, McIlroy knows he could go top if he takes home the €750,000 winner’s cheque.
Just €541,667 will count in the Race to Dubai as the event has a limited field but it could still be enough to regain top spot with the HSBC Champions, the Hong Kong Open and the Dubai World Championship to come over the final three weeks of the season.
Putting a priority for Harrington and McIlroy
McIlroy skips Singapore for Volvo Match Play glory
And that means he is skipping the European Tour's clashing €3.3m Barclays Singapore Open, where Padraig Harrington and Phil Mickelson will go head to head.
The Holywood star, 20, reckons he has a better chance of winning the Race to Dubai by heading to Spain to take on his main rivals for the European money title in the "Champions League" style matchplay tournament.
