Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Why is Dustin Johnson dominating so much on this course? On the 7th tee I ran into a friend who gets the signals from caddies for which club a players is hitting (for tv broadcast) and he told me thru 7 holes DJ hadn't hit anything on a par four bigger than a wedge! On the par five 6th hole from 220 yards away, Johnson hit 6 iron!

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Everything is bigger in Texas? I can vouch for the golf tournament being big because HOF'er and Texas native Tom Kite is out walking around marveling at the atmosphere here in Austin.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

The 6th green is very close to the first green so when the Dustin Johnson vs. Alex Noren match went thru the first, the crowd turned around and gathered at the sixth awaiting the first afternoon match of Phil Mickelson vs. Bill Haas to arrive.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Here's the Quarter Finals of the WGC-Match Play bracket of players going out this afternoon trying to get to Sunday. Potentially we could have a Phil Mickelson vs. Dustin Johnson final. We could also potentially have a Soren Kjeldsen vs. Alex Noren final as well.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Quarterfinals are now set. --Mickelson vs. Haas --Rahm vs. Kjeldsen --Fisher vs. Tanihara --D.Johnson vs. Noren

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Dustin Johnson rolls on. Asked him the other day if he can be intimidating to an opponent. "I don't know. You have to ask them." Fair point.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Phil Mickelson is 4-0-0 at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship and is still worried that he hasn't seen the last three holes of Austin Country Club because he's been beating guys too quickly. That is... PEAK PHIL.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Jon Rahm started the year ranked 137th in the world. Just a little something to keep in mind when he breaks into the top-10 soon.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

So this new Match Play format... works great right?! Uh, you need to see what Jason Sobel and Michael Collins say about it first. Someone may need to give Michael a hand.
