Rory McIlroy is through to the quarter-final stage of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play after beating Lucas Herbert in the last 16.
McIlroy was taken all the way to the 18th hole by the Australian but an errant drive from Herbert allowed McIlroy to seal a 2up victory with a short chip up close after driving just short of the green.
Meanwhile, Scottie Scheffler completed an epic comeback to defeat JT Poston 1up. After sitting two behind going into the final four holes, the world No 1 showed his class with three birdies and won the last by making a par as Poston bogeyed.
Scheffler now faces Jason Day, who beat Matt Kuchar, in the quarter-finals, while McIlroy is up against Xander Schauffele. Cameron Young faces Kurt Kitayama and Sam Burns will play Mackenzie Hughes in the other last-eight match.
