2019 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play: Records for all 64 players

This week, sixty four of the best players in the world will tee it up at Austin Country Club in Texas for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. As I do every year, I’ve created a table looking at the match play records for each player in the field, with each player name being clickable and taking you to the full details of each match. It is sorted by winning percentage, with the following tournaments being covered:

  • WGC-Match Play (2016-2018): Records from the current host course, Austin Country Club.
  • WGC-Match Play (1999-2015): This shows their record at all previous courses to host the event, dating back to 1999.
  • Presidents Cup: Singles records only from the Presidents Cup.
  • Ryder Cup: Singles records only from the Ryder Cup.
  • Other: The Cisco/Volvo World Match Play on the European Tour, as well as the Paul Lawrie Match Play, ISPS Handa Match Play, Seve Trophy, Royal Trophy and Eurasia Cup. Again, singles records only. Note that this doesn’t include the 1994, 1995 or 1996 Cisco Match Play, which were all won by Ernie Els. There just isn’t enough reliable data available online to include the information, but if anyone has access to it, let me know and I’ll add them in.

Note that Adam Scott, and Rickie Fowler qualified for the event, but decided to take a pass this week. Their full records can be accessed by clicking on their names as well.

There are a few caveats to mention when going down this list. In addition to looking at the winning percentage, it’s obviously important to look at the total number of matches played, and the quality of competition as well. There’s no better example of this than Tony Finau, who has won 75% of his matches, but it doesn’t really mean as much when you mention that he’s only 3-1. Contrast that with Tiger, who has won at a 72% clip in 69 matches, and you have a nicer, more meaningful number. Context matters, so click through to the individual player pages for more information.

The other thing is that this only includes professional match play. I would love to get deep into the weeds on how players did in the college and amateur ranks, but I haven’t done that yet, so just keep that in mind as well.
