Kisner is looking for the biggest title of his career, having won PGA titles at Colonial a year ago and Sea Island in 2015, while Poulter must now win next week's Houston Open to qualify for the Masters. And when things are working, his opponents are left scratching their heads at just how he gets his golf ball to do those insane things.
"I played solid enough to win all of these matches, and it was nice to do so", Thomas told the Golf Channel after dominating Francesco Molinari 7 & 5 on Friday. Kisner led that event through 54 holes.
Thomas won both his morning and afternoon matches in some style to see off Si Woo Kim and Kyle Stanley to move into the last four.
His relatively low ranking is due primarily to last year's mediocre form that caused him to plummet down the list.
Favorites to win the Masters seemingly change on a week-to-week basis.
"I knew Louis wasn't going to back off, that's why he's got a green jacket in his closet". "It's much different than kind of how I would approach a stroke play round, so play him and most important just keep doing what I've been doing". "So focused on committing to the shots, there was about four or five shots throughout the week where I wasn't committed, where I kind of blanked out, and so, that's pretty good over a 100-and-something holes, however many holes we played". Going from winning on Sunday to travelling on Monday, getting an early practice on Tuesday to play on Wednesday, I didn't have a lot of time to sort of recharge the batteries.
Karen McDougal Alleges She & Donald Trump Had Unprotected Sex Multiple Times
She said she got cold feet, in part because she still felt loyal to Trump and didn't want to tarnish her image. The pair would meet at least five times a month according to McDougal and sometimes many more times than that.
"But then I can't stay out of the country too long as I have to get dressed-up and be ready to return to Augusta". The win was his second in the last five weeks, and the 11th of his illustrious PGA TOUR career.
Oosthuizen - who's only major is the 2010 Open - almost won the Masters in 2012, but lost out to Bubba Watson in a play-off at Augusta.
Kisner got off to the worst possible start having had little time to recover from his tense semi-final win over Alex Noren at the first extra hole, and Watson took full advantage as he raced six up after seven holes and never looked likely to relinquish his lead.
Thomas went into the water from an awkward lie on the par-5 12th, pitched to 6 feet and had a chance to escape with a halve and remain 2 down. A 12-foot putt for eagle at the 12th dropped, giving him a 3 up lead coming home.
No. 35 Bubba Watson def. After Noren missed his comeback attempt, Kisner rolled in a 5-foot birdie putt to win the match and set up an all-Georgia Bulldog final with Watson.
