Snedeker beat Stanley in Match Play
Johnson won when Molinari conceded a 12-foot eagle putt on the par-5 13th. The long-hitting American had six birdies and one bogey in the first 12 holes.
“Yesterday, I just wasn’t feeling all that great starting out,” Johnson said. “So, I just kind of hung in there all day. And got a little momentum late, hit some good shots and, obviously, holed a few chips. But that kept my momentum going. … And that momentum kind of carried over to today.”
Johnson failed to win a match in his three previous appearances in the event. He’ll face Mark Wilson on Friday. Last year, Wilson beat Johnson in 19 holes in the first round. Wilson advanced Thursday with a 3-and-2 victory over Robert Rock.
“He’s a good all-around player,” Johnson said. “It will be a tough match.”
Lawrie, the 1999 British Open champion, won the wind-shortened Qatar Masters three weeks ago for his seventh European Tour title.
“I had the pressure on him early,” Senden said. “Then, basically, from there, I wanted to keep focused and keep the quality of shots going on. I did that and he sort of made the mistakes to force the match to go further and further my way.”
