MARANA, Ariz., Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Rory McIlroy will take on Lee Westwood in one semifinal round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship after each won quarterfinal matches Saturday.

The victor in that match-up will likely take over the mantle of the world's No. 1 golfer when rankings come out Monday.

McIlroy, the top seed in the Gary Player bracket, bested 11th-seeded Sang Moon Bae, 3 & 2 Saturday.

Meanwhile, Westwood -- the No. 1 seed in the Sam Snead bracket -- posted a 4 & 2 victory over Martin Laird.

A pair of Americans will compete against each in the other semifinal battle after each registered a victory in the quarters.

Hunter Mahan drubbed Matt Kuchar 6 & 5 in one of the matches, capturing the Ben Hogan bracket.

He will face Bobby Jones bracket champ Mark Wilson, who took a 4 & 3 win over Peter Hanson.

The championship round will follow the Sunday morning semifinals.
