The 18th hole is playing 356 yards this round and Jon Rahm just hit a drive that thru the green and off the back edge. Dustin Johnson hit an iron off the tee, then came up short of the green with his second shot.

The @NHLBruins Anders Bjork (5th rounder in 2014) was all world for Notre Dame today in their win to get to Frozen Four. 21-31-52 in 38 G's

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Walking off the 8th green Dustin Johnson was 5up over Jon Rahm. They're now heading to the 18th tee with DJ clinging to a 1up lead trying to become the first golfer to ever win all the WGC events.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Dustin Johnson leads 1-up with one to play. Couldn't ask for much more. Going the full 18. Only seven halved holes in the match so far.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Jon Rahm is just not ready to lose. After making a 31'8" putt for birdie on the 16th hole and Dustin Johnson missing his 16 footer the final match goes to the 17th hole with Rahm now only being 1 down.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Jon Rahm just hit a shot directly through a tree. Sure. But when I try that, it comes right back, hits me in the leg and I make a quad.

Bill Haas defeats Hideto Tanihara in the consolation match 2&1. The win earns Haas a third place check of $678,000. Tanihara will have to console himself with the fourth place winnings... $545,000.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Yes Jon Rahm outdrove Dustin Johnson by 14 yards on the par five 12th and then lost the hole. But this just happened on the 13th! Drive for show? Fo sho!! (for sure, in case you don't know slang)

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

As the final two matches play their last holes the breeze here at the WGC-Dell Match Play remains brisk. Earlier there were gusts clocked at over 35 mph on the tours weather site.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

"Over? Did you say, over?" Jon Rahm wins the 9th and 10th holes. Now Rahm is only 3 down to Dustin Johnson as they play the 11th hole.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

You should be scared that Jon Rahm is going to remember this beat down. He's an affiliate member of the European Tour making him eligible for the 2018 Ryder Cup. I'm pretty sure he's gonna want another shot at Dustin Johnson.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

One thing you can't do in Match Play is give your opponent holes. Making bogeys gives away holes and Jon Rahm has made 3 bogeys in the first 8 holes. Dustin Johnson now has a commanding 5 up lead as they play the ninth hole.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Two dots for Hideto Tanihara's eagle, plus another for the greenie. Would've really been something if he was getting a stroke there.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

It's not really a thing. At least, it never has been. But with a win, Dustin Johnson would be the first player to claim the WGC Grand Slam.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

For the first time in 7 matches Dustin Johnson does not win the first hole. He didn't lose it, but after the halve with Jon Rahm, DJ goes to the 2nd hole all square.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Caddie stamina for the afternoon final match... Jon Rahm's caddie Adam Hayes told me he only had a salad cause the curry pasta didn't seem like a good idea. Dustin Johnson's caddie/brother Austin told me he had a grilled chicken sandwich on a whole wheat bun. Wanted the extra protein for energy.
