Washington, Feb 23 (IANS) Bubba Watson came out the only survivor as other top 10 seeds fell in the second round of the Match Play Championship, following World No.1 Rory McIlroy and 14-time major champion Tiger Woods' exit.

Washington, Feb 23 — Bubba Watson came out the only survivor as other top 10 seeds fell in the second round of the Match Play Championship, following World No.1 Rory McIlroy and 14-time major champion Tiger Woods' exit.

The eighth-seeded Watson missed two straight putts that would have won the match before he finally put away Jim Furyk in 22 holes Friday. It was the first time since the World Golf Championship began in 1999 that only one top 10 seed was left after two rounds, reports Xinhua.

Luke Donald, the No.3 seed, suffered his worst loss in this event, beaten 7 and 6 by Scott Piercy, fourth-seeded Louis Oosthuizen never led against Robert Garrigus and Justin Rose, the No.5 seed, lost to Nicolas Colsaerts 4 and 2.

Of the 16 players remaining, the Americans and Europeans each have seven players still alive.
