The 2019 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, the final marquee event on the 2019 PGA Tour before Augusta, tees off Wednesday from Austin Country Club deep in the heart of Texas. Virtually every top player in the world is in the 2019 WGC Match Play field this year for an event unlike any other we’ve seen this season. Group play will take place from Wednesday to Friday, with the knockout rounds coming on Saturday and Sunday. Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy, each with an Official World Golf Ranking in the top four, are the event’s co-favorites at 9-1 in the latest 2019 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play odds. Justin Thomas (14-1) and Jon Rahm (16-1) are the only other golfers going off shorter than 20-1 in this 64-player field.
That means there are plenty of value selections in the 2019 WGC-Dell Match Play bracket. So, before locking in your 2019 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play picks and PGA Tour predictions for Austin, see what the team at SportsLine has to say.
SportsLine’s prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has nailed four of the last eight majors entering the weekend and called Tiger Woods’ deep run in the PGA Championship despite being a 25-1 long shot. The model has been spot-on early in the 2018-19 season. It was high on eventual winner Rory McIlroy at the 2019 Players Championship, projecting him as one of the top two contenders from the start.
It also correctly predicted Brooks Koepka’s (9-1) victory at the CJ Cup earlier this season. Additionally, it correctly called Bryson DeChambeau’s (9-1) seven-shot victory at the 2019 Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Anyone who has followed the model is way up.
Now that the 2019 WGC-Dell Match Play field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. One huge shocker the model is calling for: Tiger Woods, a three-time winner of this event, stumbles this week and barely cracks the top 20.
Woods is making his first WGC Match Play start since 2013. The 43-year-old is the only three-time winner of this event (2003, 2004, 2008) and is the only player in tournament history to have successfully defended his title.
However, despite his success at this event, Woods has finished inside the top 10 just once this season. Plus, the 80-time PGA Tour winner will be making his first career start at Austin Country Club for the WGC Match Play 2019 event. He enters the 2019 WGC Dell Match Play tournament hitting just 65.18 percent of fairways off the tee, which could cause major trouble at Austin Country Club. His grouping also features Patrick Cantlay, Brandt Snedeker, and Aaron Wise. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in this loaded field.
Another surprise: Paul Casey, a 25-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title in the 2019 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play bracket. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday.
Casey rolls into Austin with plenty of confidence after winning the Valspar Championship last week. A second-round 66 helped power him to 8-under par for the tournament and a huge victory. But that’s just part of a bigger trend of recent success that also includes top-three finishes at the WGC-Mexico Championship and AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. In total, he’s finished in the top-10 in seven of his 10 events on tour this season.
That’s thanks in large part to his driving accuracy percentage, which ranks seventh on tour at 70.6. He’s also hit 71.3 percent of greens in regulation, good for 21st on tour. Those numbers have helped him average over four birdies per round and around one eagle per event. He has all the skills needed to climb the 2019 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play leaderboard in a hurry starting on Wednesday.
Also, the model says five additional golfers with 2019 WGC Dell Match Play odds of 20-1 or longer make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big.
The PGA Tour heads to Texas this week for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, the third of four World Golf Championships this season. This marks the fourth season the event will be held at Austin Country Club in Austin, Texas.
This also marks the fifth year of the event’s new, pool-play format, which doesn’t feel so new any more. The 64 players are broken up into 16 groups of four, and everyone plays each other once in each group, with one man advancing to the round of 16. A won match is a full point and a halved match is a half of a point. The player with the most points at the end of all three matches moves on to the round of 16, and any ties are decided in a sudden death playoff.
The World Cup style format has yielded some exciting results, with Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and Bubba Watson claiming wins in the last four years. All four former winners are in the field this year, as is Tiger Woods, who will be playing in this format for the first time in his career. Woods is in a group this year with Brandt Snedeker, Aaron Wise and Patrick Cantlay. The group packing the most star power, Group 12, consists of Day, Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk and Henrik Stenson.
It’s time for March Madness…PGA Tour style, as the tour takes a break from traditional stroke play and heads to Austin for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.
The annual bracket of 64 will once again converge on Austin Country Club where a year ago Bubba Watson disposed of Kevin Kisner (7&6) in the match play final. 64 of the top 66 players in the OWGR are set to compete over five days in Texas, including former Match Play champions Tiger Woods (2003, 2004, 2008), Jason Day (2014, 2016), Rory Mcilroy (2015) and Dustin Johnson (2017).
The top 16 seeds in the tournament are decided by the Official World Rankings, with the remaining 48 players, placed in the 16 different groups. Golfers will square off against each of the 3 players in their pool in a round robin format from Wednesday- Friday. The winner of each group will advance to the single elimination format over the weekend.
The previous three Match Play winners (Watson, DJ, Day) consistently have an advantage over the field off the tee. SG off the Tee as well as Driving Distance will be useful stats to keep an eye on.Windy and dry Texas conditions will also favor the longer hitters, as ACC could play similar to British Open-like course conditions.
