In form Jason Day joins four other Aussies at World Golf Championships Match Play – Australian TV Times, Groups

We eagerly anticipate the arrival of the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play event. Its format is not only enjoyable to play, but also makes for excellent television viewing.

Jason Day arrives at this week’s WGC Dell Technologies Match Play in the best form he has been in for a while finishing no worse than 19th in his previous six starts on the PGA Tour.

The 35-year-old looks injury free for the first time in many years and has been drawn into group 9 alongside Collin Morikawa, Adam Svensson and Viktor Perez.

Day is the most recent Australian winner of the WGC Match Play, claiming victory the first time it was held in Austin in 2016 and also in 2014 when the tournament was held in Arizona. He will be joined in the 64-man field by fellow Australians Cam Davis, Min Woo Lee, Lucas Herbert and Adam Scott.

Min Woo Lee will play in his second WGC Match Play with a big incentive for the 24-year-old to win the group stage of the event.

Lee finished T6 at THE PLAYERS Championship two weeks ago for his career first top-10 on the PGA Tour and needs to advance out of his group (or finish in a two-way tie for 17th or better) to earn Special Temporary Membership for the remainder of the season.

“I would love to play over here in America against the best in the world, but I really like playing in Europe too. You have really good results there and when the schedule fits, I would love to play both tours,” Lee said.

But, yeah, here’s the place I want to be. And, yeah, temporary membership, yes, it’s close, but I got a few tournaments to make up for that and hopefully I can get to that.

Lee is in Group 11 alongside Matt Fitzpatrick, J.J. Spaun and Sahith Theegala, whom he faces in his first match on Wednesday. See full group listings below.
