Marana, Ariz. Lee Westwood got his revenge on Nick Watney on Friday and moved a step closer to a shot at regaining the No. 1 ranking. Westwood was eliminated in the Match Play Championship each of the last two years by Watney. He birdied the opening two holes and pulled away when Watney missed too many short putts. He advanced to the quarterfinals with a 3-and-2 win. Rory McIlroy also can go to No. 1 by winning the Match Play. He advanced with a 3-and-1 win over Miguel Angel Jimenez. Hunter Mahan won big over Steve Stricker, and Matt Kuchar defeated Martin Kaymer.
