WGC Match Play semifinals set

MARANA, Ariz. (AP) - A brief look at play Saturday in the Match Play Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Club at Dove Mountain:

Quarterfinal results: Matt Kuchar def. Robert Garrigus 3 and 2; Jason Day def. Graeme McDowell, 1 up; Ian Poulter def. Steve Stricker, 3 and 2; Hunter Mahan def. Webb Simpson, 1 up.

Semifinal pairings: Kuchar vs. Day; Poulter vs. Mahan.

History Hunter: Mahan is trying to join Tiger Woods as the only repeat winners in the event. Not only has Mahan won every match he has played - 11 in a row - over the last two years, he now has gone 151 consecutive holes without trailing.

Shot of the day: Poulter's 40-foot birdie putt on the third hole that turned his match with Stricker, who missed a 6-footer on the hole. ``It was 40 feet, left-to-right, right-to-left, right-to-left again, hopefully slowing down on the ridge, taking a left-hand turn, down the slope and then chucking a little left to right at the end to drop it,'' Poulter said. ``It was really nice.''

Quote of the day: ``I know it's not the top four in the world, probably what everyone was hoping for. But there's been a lot of great golf played, a lot of great shot, a lot of great putts. There's a lot of great players.'' - Mahan.

Stat of the day: Poulter, the 2010 champion, is 19-3-2 in match play over the last four years. Along with a perfect singles record in the Ryder Cup, he won the European Tour's 2011 World Match Play in Spain.
