Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood both won their third round matches today at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Austin, Texas.

That meant they both finished pool play 2-1, and despite Garcia having won their head-to-head match on Wednesday, they went to a sudden death playoff to see who would advance to the round of 16.

Westwood is one of the hottest players on the planet, having been in the final group at both the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Players Championship, and finishing solo second both weeks. Garcia, meanwhile, has been on a decent run of form, but the match play format always seems to give him an extra stat boost. (Westwood as well; both players are legend-level ballstrikers and both players are horrible putters, a skillset that’s better-suited to match play thanks to the constant pressure you’re putting on an opponent.)

After halving their first three holes with pars, Westwood hit the green on the par-3 fourth hole at

Austin Country Club, once again putting pressure on Garcia.

Then Sergio did this:

Just absurd.

It’s hard to imagine a more opportune time for an ace. Golf offers the opportunity for walk-off grand slams even less than baseball, but Sergio absolutely got one today.

More match play, please.
