Dustin Johnson will this week bid to become the first player to defend the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play since Tiger Woods back in 2004, albeit at a different venue these days in Austin Country Club.
Woods might not have qualified to play this week, as he's outside the top 64 players in the world at 105, but the level of excitement remains just as strong as recent weeks with one of the strongest fields aligning so far this season.
Pool play commences on Wednesday, with the winner advancing from each of the 16 groups and into knockout play beginning on Saturday.
Johnson, who has been world number one for 57 consecutive weeks now, sealed a narrow 1 up victory over Jon Rahm in last year's final.
Rory McIlroy will bid to go back-to-back on the PGA Tour following his first win since September 2016 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational last week, and the omens look good for the pre-tournament favourite given he won this event back in 2015, albeit at TPC Harding Park.
Jason Day is another to have enjoyed a good run of fortune in the WGC Match-Play in recent years, winning at Austin Country Club in 2016 and at Dove Mountain in 2014.
Here's a look at the runners and riders for this week's renewal, as well as each of the 16 groups and their seedings. Who do you fancy for the W? Share your thoughts in the GM Forum or join us on social media...
