Rory McIlroy faces an anxious wait on his WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play future after Gary Woodland pulled back from the competition. Forest, runner-up to McIlroy two years prior, hauled out of the competition in the blink of an eye before the two were booked to clash because of individual reasons.
That leaves McIlroy, who lost to Soren Kjeldsen 2&1 in the opening round-robin coordinate, requiring Emiliano Grillo to vanquish the Dane in their gathering apparatus today to remain in the opposition. Forest’s illustrative Mark Steinberg said in an announcement: “Because of an individual family matter, Gary Woodland must pull back from the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

“We ask that you regard his family’s security as of now.” On the off chance that Grillo beats Kjeldsen, then McIlroy would need to beat the Argentinian in their last gathering match tomorrow to remain in the opposition. He would then face Kjeldsen in a play-off to figure out who achieves the last 16.
Ought to Kjeldsen secure no less than a share of his crown jewels from his match today, added to the point he will pick up on Friday for a Woodland walkover, then McIlroy will be disposed of.
Forest is the second player to pull back from the occasion for individual reasons, taking after Jason Day’s initial exit amid the opening round. Watch the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play during the time live on Sky Sports 4 – your home of golf
