Sixteen players battled Saturday morning at Austin Country Club for the chance to compete in the quarterfinals of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship. Here’s how the Round of 16 played out:

(48) Kevin Kisner def. (36) Haotong Li, 6 and 5: Kisner needed to beat Ian Poulter in a playoff to reach the Round of 16. Li wishes he didn’t. Kisner won the first three holes and was 5 up through eight. Kisner was on the record for seven birdies in 13 holes. Li made one.

(7) Francesco Molinari def. (10) Paul Casey, 5 and 4: The battle of European Ryder Cup teammates went to the man who went undefeated at Le Golf National in 2018. Molinari continued his stellar match play performance. He was 1 down after the first, but quickly turned that into a 2-up advantage. He kept that lead before winning the 12th, 13th and 14th holes to close out Casey.

(19) Louis Oosthuizen def. (17) Marc Leishman, 2 and 1: The Presidents Cup teammates battled closely throughout the morning, but Leishman could never get closer than 2 down on the back nine. After making five birdies in a seven-hole stretch around the turn, Oosthuizen steadily parred his way in for victory. He will face Kisner in the quarterfinals.
