Rickie Fowler withstood a back-nine charge by Jim Furyk to beat his fellow American 1 up in a nail-biting finale Saturday and book a WGC Match Play Championship semi-final with Jason Day.
Furyk, 3 down through 12 holes, won four straight to take a 1-up lead through 16. But Fowler held his nerve to win the last two holes for the narrow victory.
Australia's Day, who finished third in the elite 64-man event last year, defeated South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen 2 and 1.
