Jordan Spieth after tie at WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play: 'I've made progress'

“To birdie the last two holes is really big for me right now as I’m looking to gain confidence under pressure and kind of test some of the stuff I’ve been working on,” Spieth said.

Tiger Woods beat Aaron Wise, last season’s PGA Tour rookie of the year, 3 and 1 after fighting back to reclaim the lead on the 13th hole.

Reigning British Open champion Francesco Molinari, who won three weeks ago at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, beat Satoshi Kodaira, 5 and 4.

Paul Casey, who won last week’s Valspar Championship, made quick work of Abraham Ancer in a 5-and-3 victory.

Phil Mickelson, who won earlier this year at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am but has missed his last two cuts, lost to Henrik Stenson, 2 and 1, in a rematch of their 2016 battle in the British Open.

“It was really nice to hit some shots under pressure in the end and make a couple of birdies to finish,’ Spieth said.
