AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Tiger Woods opens the Dell Technologies Match Play against the PGA Tour rookie of the year.
Woods is back in the Match Play for the first time since 2013, when it was held in Arizona and he was eliminated in the opening round. Now it is group play, assuring him of three matches. The winner of the 16 groups advance to the knockout stage.
First up for Woods on Wednesday is Aaron Wise, an NCAA champion from Oregon who won the AT&T Byron Nelson last year. Also in the group are Patrick Cantlay and Brandt Snedeker.
Dustin Johnson is the No. 1 seed and has Hideki Matsuyama, Branden Grace and Chez Reavie.
Jason Day is in the all-major champion group with Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson and Jim Furyk.
