If you had DJ, ZJ, Noren, Koepka, Fisher, Bubba, Tanihara, Casey, Haas, Na, Phil, Leish, CH3, Rahm, McGirt, Kjeldsen, congrats. You cheated.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Brendan Steele and Zach Johnson all square going to 18. If Steele wins or gets a halve, he advances -- and gets to play Dustin Johnson.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Always a little iffy when translating from match play, but the scorecard shows Dustin Johnson at 12-under through 45 holes this week.
