GolfWRX is live this week from the 2017 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club in Austin, Texas. The course (par 71, 7,108 yards) was designed by Pete Dye and is hosting the WGC Match Play event for the second straight season.
Unlike the NCAA March Madness style-format, the WGC Match Play now begins with 16 groups of four players competing in round-robin matches. Then the winners from each group advance to the single-elimination portion, where matches are played until a winner emerges.
This year’s field consists of the four top-ranked golfers in the world: Dustin Johnson (No. 1), Rory McIlroy (No. 2), Jason Day (No. 3) and Hideki Matsuyama (No. 4). Last year, Day bested Louis Oosthuizen 5&4 in the finals to take home the 2016 WGC Match Play trophy.
