TOMMY Fleetwood hit a hole-in-one but missed out on a place in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play semi-finals after defeat to eventual champion Billy Horschel in a play-off on Saturday.

An ace helped the Englishman get the better of Dylan Frittelli in the morning with a 4&3 win but he could not build on his last-16 success against American Horschel.

The 30-year-old Holmes Chapel held a slender advantage at the turn and moved two up at the 11th with another birdie.

After achieving the feat, the Englishman's celebration was muted and he explained to reporters following the last-16 win: "The thing about match play is I might have won (the hole), but it was just on to the next hole and try and kick on.

"I might think about it later. But, yeah, it was a great shot."

However, he was edged out in the quarter-finals to Horschel, who went on to see off Victor Perez in the last four before beating Scottie Scheffler to take home the £7.6million prize.
