AUSTIN, Texas – Matt Kuchar didn’t look the a part of a 42-year-old PGA Tour veteran late Sunday afternoon at Austin Country Club. Following his 2-and-1 victory over Victor Perez within the day’s comfort match, Kuchar leaned into his WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play resume.
“What time’s my next match? When do I get Billy Horschel. I got six points, how many has he got? Come on, Billy, any time, any place, I’m ready, you know it,” Kuchar joked.
There was no second probability ready for Kuchar. He misplaced his semifinal match to Scottie Scheffler and Horschel received the championship match, 2 and 1. Instead, Kuchar had to accept third place, once more.
Kuchar’s report on the WGC-Match Play is healthier than many PGA Tour careers. He’s received as soon as (2013), completed runner-up as soon as (2019) and now has two third-place finishes (2011 and ’21) for a complete of eight top-10 finishes in 11 begins and over $4.9 million in earnings within the occasion.
“Every year we come here I really enjoy myself, I enjoy the format,” Kuchar stated. “Certainly, it was anti-climatic playing in the afternoon match, but once you get out, once you get going, the juices get going and you don’t want to lose.”
