Accenture Match Play 2012 Bracket: Hunter Mahan And Mark Wilson Advance To Semifinals

At the 2012 Accenture Match Play tournament in Arizona, one of the semifinal matches has already been set for Sunday.

In the final match in the Ben Hogan bracket, No. 6 seed Hunter Mahan knocked off No. 4 seed Matt Kuchar by winning six holes to Kuchar's five in 13 holes. Kuchar bogeyed on holes 3, 5, 7 and 10 while Mahan made par on all four.

Meanwhile, in the Bobby Jones bracket, No. 10 seed Mark Wilson advanced past No. 9 seed Peter Hanson. Wilson took five holes to three through 15. Hanson got off to a rough start right away with a bogey on the first hole, a par-4. He settled down after that and the two men matched one another for the next nine holes. They stepped to the 10th tee tied at 2-2 before Hanson bogeyed on back-to-back holes on 10 and 11 while Wilson made par on both. A bogey by Hanson on hole 14 sealed the win for Wilson.

Wilson and Mahan will face off in one of two semifinal matches on Sunday. Rory McIlroy and Sang-Moon Bae are currently tied at two holes each through 10 in the Gary Player bracket quarterfinal, while Lee Westwood is 3-up on Martin Laird through 10 holes in the Sam Snead bracket quarterfinal.
