Australian TV broadcast schedule for the 2015 WGC Cadillac Match Play
One of our favourite golf tournaments of the year rolls around this week with a brand new (and infinitely better) format.
The WGC Cadillac Match Play has been shifted from its usual home in Arizona in February to Harding Park Golf Club, San Francisco in April. The tournament will tee off on Wednesday (Thursday Australian time) with 64 of the world’s best golfers competing in a match play format that has been re-jigged a little this year.
Instead of the previous knockout format, all players will be assigned to a group of four and play three matches against each other player in the group, before the top-ranked players from each of the eight groups proceed to the weekend’s knockout matches.
It’s a lot like the format for the Football World Cup and a lot more reasonable as all golfers play three matches, with no danger of the top seeds exiting the stage early. If only the Olympic Golf format was something similar. Sigh.
