Day beats Oosthuizen to win WGC-Dell Matchplay

Australian secures back-to-back wins ahead of Masters

Jason Day produced a commanding display of golf in beating Louis Oosthuizen to win his second WGC-Dell Matchplay title in three years.

Having seen off the challenge of Rory McIlroy earlier in the day, winning one up after a thrilling encounter, the US PGA champion dominated the final, rarely giving his opponent much hope as he won 5&4.

Oosthuizen got off to a good start in taking the first hole but Day had hit back and was ahead by the fourth.

The world number one extended his lead to by three holes at the turn before birdies at 13 and 14 clinched him the title.

Coming after he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational last week, the 28-year-old heads to Augusta in two weeks' time as one of the favourites to win the green jacket.

"I'm very, very thrilled," he said. "It's been a memorable week, not only to win the Dell Match Play Championship but also to get back to number one in the world."

In the third place play-off McIlroy suffered further disappointment as he went down to Rafael Cabrera-Bello by 3&2.
