World # 1 golfer Rory has been reportedly teamed with 3 high rated American golfers for Cadillac WGC Match Play that is to be held at San Francisco.
The grouping was decided by a draw that put the Northern Irishman against the reigning FedExCup champ Billy Horschel, along with Brandt Snedeker (7-times PGA champ) & major champ Jason Dufner under round-robin play for the championship to be starting at Harding Park TPC.
The WGC Match Play event, the very first of elite 4 WGC events in 2015, was a famous knockout championship since its foray in the year 1999 till 2014. It implied that grand players were sent for packing on first day.
However, the very format has received a tweak this year with the effort to provide the top seeds good chances to recover from one poor match.
Jordan Spieth, the Masters champion & the 2nd seed in ground of 64, drew Lee Westwood of England, Matt Every of America & Mikko Ilonen from Finland.
Spanish golfer Sergio Garcia, the 10th seed, has been put into a pan-European grouping that consists of Bernd Wiesberger, Jamie Donaldson & Tommy Fleetwood. (more…)
