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.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

I can guarantee there's one place celebrating before the final match between Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson... TaylorMade! Their golf clubs are finishing in 1st and 2nd place at the WGC-Match Play regardless of which name is on the winning or losing bag.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Congrats to D.A. Points. Wild career with some high highs and low lows, but wins the Puerto Rico Open today for his third career victory.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Adam Long is going DEEP at the Web.com Tour's Chitimacha Louisiana Open. He might not track down Casey Wittenberg, who at -20 has been nearly flawless (one bogey thru 3 rounds), but Long is giving it his best shot.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

This is final match not just a battle of Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm's golf games'. It's a battle of stamina and fitness. This will be the seventh competitive round in five days for both of these men (4th round in two days)!

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Kudos to Hideto Tanihara for taking Dustin Johnson to the 18th hole of their match. World # 1 prevails with a par on the last hole winning 1up. This afternoon's final will be Dustin Johnson vs. Jon Rahm

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

And there we have it: The match everyone wanted to see. Dustin Johnson vs. Jon Rahm in the WGC-Match Play final.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Love how Jon Rahm doesn't give the "anyone" answer on who he wants next: "I want to play the best right now. It would be great to play DJ."

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Jon Rahm defeats Bill Haas. One win away from a second career win, which would propel him into the world's top-10 for the first time.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Jon Rahm beats Bill Haas 3&2 to advance to the afternoon finals match here in Austin, TX and the WGC-Match Play event.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Dustin Johnson a fast player? On the 9th hole it took DJ all of 13 seconds to hit his second shot after Hideto Tanihara's golf ball came to rest on the green. Holy Speed Batman!! Dustin is one of the fastest players on the PGA Tour.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Eagle at the 6th hole for Dustin Johnson now takes a 2 up lead on Tanihara. Walking to the 7th tee Johnson brother and caddie Austin asks me, "Where's your dress clothes?" And laughed.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Dustin Johnson has played the opening hole six times this week. He's won it every time -- five birdies and a par.
