U.S. 42nd seed Bill Haas held off a late charge by countryman Phil Mickelson to defeat the five-time major victor 2 and 1 and reach a Sunday semi-final against 22-year-old Spaniard Jon Rahm, the 21st seed who routed Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen 7 and 5.
The 22-year-old Rahm defeated Soren Kjeldsen, Kevin Chappell and Charles Howell III to win his place in the semifinals.
Johnson, going after a third straight PGA Tour title, faces one of this tournament's biggest surprises in Hideko Tanihara of Japan. "Anything can happen. I'm playing good golf right now".
Johnson, the reigning US Open champion, won six of the first seven holes and completed an unbeaten run through the group stage by downing fellow American Jimmy Walker 5 and 3 at Austin Country Club.
"I'll have to work on my trash talking I guess", Leishman said.
Charter Communications Chooses McAllen As Site For It's First Bilingual Call Center
Exxon's plans to invest $29 billion in Gulf Coast manufacturing, which the company says will create 45,000 jobs, began in 2013. The firm plans to move 20-thousand jobs to the united states including a call center expansion in San Antonio.
Should Rahm go on to win this event - he will play Bill Haas in the semi-final - he will factually endorse Mickelson's ranking confidence.
We didn't win our matches on the first day. The world's No. 1 player finished off the match with two more birdies for a 5-and-4 victory.
"I hit some good shots. and drove it well".
Tanihara, who defeated two-time major victor Jordan Spieth in his first group match, reduced his deficit to a single hole before losing the 12th after three-putting it for par, but birdied the next two holes to get back to all square.
The 22-year-old, who was the world's top ranked amateur while studying at Arizona State University, is now 25th in the world after winning his first PGA Tour title in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in January.

Friedman, who once served as Trump's bankruptcy lawyer, is also critical of the so-called two-state solution. He has told both parties that now is the time for negotiations.
Mickelson had three birdies on his round while Leishman, the victor last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, conceded three holes after poor shots left him out of position.
Jon Rahm, standing at 6-foot-2 and weighing 220 pounds, towered over Kjeldsen both on the course and on the final scoreboard. "And knowing me, I might have also thought, 'I hope it's better than that".
"Towards the end, especially, I really made a couple of clutch putts". If there is a tie in group play, it is decided by a sudden-death playoff. You can just see it in him.
Jon Rahm, prodigy he may be, has won the Farmers Insurance Open and may win the WGC-Match Play, so it is clear he's got a long way to go until he reaches the dizzying heights of his compatriots. "He's got that thing about him that's going to make him a big-time victor out here, and hopefully I can hang with him".
