Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell has win through to face Sergio Garcia at the Volvo World Match Play Championship in Spain today.
However, the holder Ian Poulter and second seed Justin Rose were among the victims in Spain.
McDowell qualified for the quarter-final stages after beating England's Richard Finch this morning 3 & 2.
Scot Paul Lawrie set up a clash with Retief Goosen as his 500th European Tour event continued to go well.
Spaniard Alvaro Quiros, who has led the driving distance statistics for four of the last five seasons, saw off Poulter 4&3.
Rose, who crushed Rock 7&6 and Open champion Darren Clarke 6&4, went down by the same margin to Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts, the man who with an average of 316 yards off the tee is three yards longer than Quiros this season.
It was not so much of a surprise that 21-year-old Lewis lost to Garcia - another 4&3 game – or that Rock and tournament outsider Finch, conqueror of top seed Martin Kaymer yesterday, exited at the hands of Goosen and McDowell respectively.
