2023 WGC-Dell Match Play: Bracket, predictions, picks, odds, format, field rankings, golf bets
The PGA Tour heads to the Lone Star State for what may very well be the final World Golf Championship at the 2023 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. The lone event on the calendar to feature the match-play format, the WGC Match Play will welcome 64 of the best players in the world to Austin Country Club.
Last season, world No. 1 and defending champion Scottie Scheffler was featured in the all-English pool of Matt Fitzpatrick, Ian Poulter and Tommy Fleetwood. Scheffler went 2-1-0 in pool play, losing to Fleetwood, and had to defeat Fitzpatrick in a playoff in order to advance. This proved to be a domino effect as Scheffler went on to claim victory over Kevin Kisner in the championship, avenging his 2021 runner-up performance and climbing to world No. 1 for the first time in his career.
He arrives to his alma mater's backyard atop the golf world again, and will be up against Tom Kim, Alex Noren and Davis Riley in pool play. World No. 2 Jon Rahm occupies the other side of the bracket in the group of death, and will need to go through Billy Horschel, Keith Mitchell and Rickie Fowler in his first appearance since withdrawing from the Players Championship with illness.
Rory McIlroy is the No. 3 overall seed and will need to get something going with the 2023 Masters on the horizon. He will be tasked with defeating Keegan Bradley, Denny McCarthy and Scott Stallings. A potential date with Rahm in the semifinals could be in store if both players act accordingly.
Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa, Tony Finau, Tyrrell Hatton and Xander Schauffele should have relatively easy strolls to the Round of 16 on paper. Yet as we have seen before, unknown commodities such as Victor Perez, Victor Dubuisson and Corey Conners have made runs in the past proving anything is possible in this format.
Event: 2023 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play | Dates: Mar. 22-26
Location: Austin Country Club -- Austin, TX
Par: 71 | Yardage: 7,108 | Purse: $20,000,000
Below is the prize money payout for each golfer at this week’s Match Play. While things are listed as paydays for individual places, those who do not advance out of group play are actually paid based on how many points they earned in the first three days of round-robin golf. The breakdown depends on how many earn various point totals (2 points, 1.5, 1, .5, and 0). We’ll update these totals with specific individual player names and money earn as the tournament moves on.
GolfWRX was on site in Austin for the Dell Technologies Match Play where players had a short week of preparation prior to a long week of play with matches getting underway Wednesday.
As GolfWRXers well know, the tournament’s format is unique in that it is a match play event, meaning that players compete against each other in head-to-head matches rather than the traditional stroke play format. Over the years, the tournament has seen many great champions, including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Rory McIlroy. Last year, Scottie Scheffler took down Kevin Kisner 4&3 and claimed the $2.1 million winner’s share.
