This week the tour moves to Austin for the first World Golf Championship event of the year. 

The WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play traditionally has one of the strongest fields of the season as it is only open to the top 64 players in the world. 

First played in 1999, it has been a fixture on the calendar ever since. Tiger Woods holds the record for the most titles with three, while Jason Day and Geoff Ogilvy have both won twice. 

Having moved between California, Arizona and even Australia, the Match Play seems to have found a home at Austin Country Club, where it has been based since 2016. 

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of another huge week on tour.

The bunkered Bet

Paul Casey (30/1): Came close at the Players and his game is trending in the right direction. He was runner-up here in 2009 and 2010 – can he go one better?
