AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Cameron Young saved his biggest shots for the end Sunday in a stunning turnaround to knock out Rory McIlroy. Then it was Sam Burns getting a surprise win of his own to eliminate close friend and defending champion Scottie Scheffler.

The final edition of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play didn't lack for entertainment.

It was the first time in the 24-year history that both semifinal matches went extra holes. Right when Austin Country Club was poise for a dream title bout between two of the top players in the world, Young and Burns had the final say.
