The WGC Dell Technologies event is the only match play event for the year on the PGA Tour. The players get ranked according to their seed and go head to head to see who makes it into the final match. This event is a little bit like a tennis tournament where you "should" see the top seeded player Dustin Johnson face Justin Thomas, the second seeded player, in the last match but this is golf and it is match play. To get to the finals you will need to beat 4 players so of course there will be drama along the way and be plenty of upsets.

For all your Tiger Woods fans out there you will have to wait till The Masters to see him tee it up again but we have another star studded field this year at the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play held at Austin Country Club Texas.

Players to watch out for are defending champion Dustin Johnson who defeated Jon Rahm 1 up in an epic final battle last year. Both players will return along with the event's last two winners, Rory McIIroy and Jason Day. McIlroy is coming off a win at Bay Hill where he birdied 5 out of the last 6 holes to win. Also in the field this week is Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Hideki Matsuyama and Sergio Garcia to round out the top 8 players for the match play event.
