Semifinalists battle tough conditions

MARANA, Ariz. -- Brisk winds and much cooler temperatures are making things difficult on the semifinalists at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship on Sunday.

Both matches are on the back nine with Hunter Mahan leading Ian Poulter 2 up and Matt Kuchar owning the same advantage over Jason Day. The Kuchar-Day match is on the 12th hole while Mahan and Poulter are playing No. 11.

Neither Day nor Poulter has been able to make a birdie as the winds are blowing in the 15-20 mph range, with gusts increasing to 35. Temperatures will struggle to make it into the low 50s and the wind chill is much lower.

The third-place match will start at approximately 2 p.m. ET (noon MT) with the championship on tap for roughly 2:15 p.m. ET (12:15 p.m. MT).
