World number 52 Lucas Bjerregaard claimed a one-up victory over Tiger Woods at the WGC Match Play on Saturday, revealing he fulfilled a childhood dream, Reuters report.
The 27-year-old, who is making his debut in the competition, will now face American Matt Kuchar in the last four after a remarkable win over the 14-time major winner Woods.
Three-time Match Play winner Woods defeated Rory McIlroy earlier in the day to set up a last eight tie with Bjerregaard and found himself two-up before the Dane fought back in dramatic style.
And talking to the media following the win, Bjerregaard revealed he fulfilled a childhood dream by defeating one of the legends of the game.
Yeah, I dreamt about it. I didn’t think it was ever going to come true.
But I’ve definitely seen myself on the practice putting green when I was 10 years old making a putt to beat him or in a major or something like that.
Obviously didn’t know if it was ever going to come true. And just to get to play him was an experience for me.
Open champion Francesco Molinari will take on Kevin Kisner in the second semi-final and Bjerregaard will be hoping to take on either Molinari or Kisner in the final as he attempts to secure a third victory on the tour.
