Jordan Spieth was knocked out of the Dell Match Play on Saturday morning. Rory McIlroy and Jason Day stayed on course to meet in the semifinals.

Louis Oosthuizen put Spieth in a hole early and the world No. 1 didn't have the game to come back. Oosthuizen moved on to the quarterfinals with a 3-and-2 victory. Spieth had never trailed in any match until facing Oosthuizen.

McIlroy survived a tough match with Zach Johnson that went to the 18th hole. McIlroy hit a wedge within 3 feet and had to make it for a 1-up victory after Johnson's birdie. Day won 3 and 2 over Brandt Snedeker.

The other quarterfinalists Saturday afternoon were Dustin Johnson, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Brooks Koepka, Ryan Moore and Chris Kirk.
