Host of the World Golf Championships
Austin Country Club became host of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play in 2016. One of four events held annually, the World Golf Championships are considered the highest-ranking tournaments in golf behind the four majors and the Players Championship.
Originally the WGC-Andersen Consulting Match Play Championship, the 1999 and 2000 events were held at La Costa, California.
The tournament became the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in 2001, and moved to Australia, before being brought back to California just a year later.
Arizona became the host state to the Match Play in 2007, with both The Gallery and Dove Mountain playing host.
Harding Park then took over host duties when it became the Cadillac Match Play in 2015.
The tournament moved to Austin Country Club in 2016 alongside new sponsor Dell Technologies.
Only three men have won the Match Play on multiple occasions. Tiger Woods has three to his name, with Geoff Ogilvy and Jason Day both excelling in the format.
Sam Burns was the final winner of this event in 2023, a title previously held by Scottie Scheffler in 2022, Billy Horschel (2021), Kevin Kisner (2019), with Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Matt Kuchar, Hunter Mahan, Luke Donald, Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson, David Toms, Kevin Sutherland, Steve Stricker, Darren Clarke, and Jeff Maggert all having won on the versus format trophy.
