The WGC Dell Match Play is a unique tournament and fun to watch as some of the best golfers in the world go head to head against one another.

The groups are created this way: The top 16 golfers are placed into 16 groups (one per group) with the remaining 48 golfers placed into the groups based on their seeding as well.
