The WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play tournament will be the final of its kind as 64 of the top players in the world gather in Austin, Texas this week. The players will be divided up into groups of four to play round-robin match play from Wednesday to Friday, and the winner of each group will advance to bracket play on Saturday and Sunday.
Scottie Scheffler won last year’s WGC and is the favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook to take it home again this year, with his odds set at +800. A win would make him just the second player in history to pull off back-to-back wins in this tournament after Tiger Woods did it in 2003 and 2004.
The weather for round-robin ground play does not look promising in Austin. Thunderstorms are predicted to roll through on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, which could cause delays and issues for the golfers. Weekend play should be much clearer, with little chance of precipitation.
