The PGA Tour returns this weekend with the 2022 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. The unique tournament will run from Thursday, March 24th to the championship round on Sunday, March 27th. The field will consist of the top 64 golfers from the Official World Golf Ranking as of March 14th, and if anyone isn’t available the next highest-ranked player that is available is invited.
This event is the only match play format in the World Golf Championships or in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event anywhere, and basically the only time the format is played at a high-level outside of collegiate golf or USGA Amateur Championships in the United States.
In the WGC format there are 16 groups of four golfers, and those with the best record will advance after a round-robin on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will advance to the Round of 16 on Saturday morning. Eight survivors from there will play the quarterfinals in the afternoon. On Sunday there will be a final four, with the two winners advancing to play for the championship, and the two semifinal losers competing for third place money.
Heading into the tournament, Jon Rahm has the best odds to win the event with +1200 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. He is followed by Justin Thomas (+1400), Viktor Hovland (+1400), Scottie Scheffler (+1600) and Dustin Johnson (+2000) round out the top-five golfers with the best odds to win.
