As the tournament lends itself, the final rounds of the WGC- Accenture Match Play Championship were anything but normal.

Starting out the day in the semifinals, Jason Day faced Rickie Fowler and Ernie Els faced Victor Dubuisson. Day beat Fowler 3 and 2 and Dubuisson went 18 to be Els 1 up.

Going into the final round Els and Fowler were paired up to duke it out for third and fourth place. Fowler came out on top, having to go an extra hole to finish 1 up. Fowler left Marana with a $630,000 in prize money and Els collected $510,000.

With the unique style of match play, Dubusson and Day set out on the course just after noon and finished nearly five and a half hours later going 23 holes. Day, who had not won a hole since 9, which was conceded to him by Dubusson, lost his 3 up lead on 18 to make it all square.

The two fought it stroke for store for the next five holes with Day coming out on top due to a poor chip shot from Dubusson.

Dubusson left with $900,000 in prize money and Day, who won the Accenture Match Play Championship, left with a check for $1,530,000.
