Five big names will be absent from this week’s WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play event at Austin Country Club, but we’re still going to have a tremendous field on hand for this week’s action. In all, we’ll see 59 of the top 64 players in the world.
Tiger nearly followed Phil Mickelson by ending a long drought, but his second-place finish at the Valspar Championship was a sign that the Big Cat still has it. Now, we’ll see how he follows it up at this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational.
This is a very strong field. The increased purse for WGC events brings out the best from both the PGA Tour and the European Tour and the criteria that must be met to get into the field thins the herd in a big way.
The Championship Course at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida will host this event for the 11th straight year on the east coast of Florida. We’ve got a tremendous field on hand for this tournament.
