Warren eagles 1st extra hole to reach match play semifinals

ABERDEEN, Scotland (AP) Marc Warren of Scotland holed an approach shot from 59 yards for eagle on the 19th to beat Tyrrell Hatton in an action-packed quarterfinal at the Paul Lawrie Match Play on Saturday.

Warren was 3 down after five holes and needed on-course treatment by the European Tour physio for a back problem. Hatton chipped in for birdie on No. 18 to take the match to extra holes.

''It was one of the most bizarre games I have ever been involved in,'' Warren said.

Warren will face Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat in the semifinals after the third seed came from 3 down after four holes to beat Northern Ireland's Michael Hoey, 2 and 1.

David Howell of England will take on former Ryder Cup teammate Robert Karlsson of Sweden in the other semifinal.
