Jason Day tipped to land third WGC Match Play title in Austin

We are counting down the days until the Masters at Augusta, and all the top golfers in the world will want to be sharpening up their games ahead of the first Major of the year, and this week the PGA Tour heads to the Austin Country Club as the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play takes centre stage, and there's a star-studded field of 64 doing battle for the prize.

There will be 16 groups of four players all doing battle over the first few days, while only the top player from each group will qualify for the last-16, and it will then be straight knockout until a winner is crowned, and with the Match Play format sure to produce some tense finishes then we are set for an epic tournament in the United States.

  • Rory McIlroy won the Bay Hill Invitational last week
  • Dustin Johnson is the reigning champion
  • Jason Day has won this event twice (2014 & 2016)

Tips Jason Day to win    Best Bet @ 14 / 1  

Fancied Contenders

Rory McIlroy produced some stunning golf to win the Bay Hil Invitational at the weekend, and the Northern Irishman will be aiming to record back-to-back wins, and he was a winner of this event in 2015, and at 8/1 with Ladbrokes has to set the standard here, as he looks to build on some fine rounds of golf last week.

Reigning champion Dustin Johnson is sure to be a leading contender for this year's tournament, and the hard-hitting American is a point bigger at 9/1 with Ladbrokes, and he should cruise through the group stages before going deep into the competition, and he could be a lively adversary to McIlroy.

Jon Rahm was defeated by Johnson in last year's final, and the Spaniard will be looking to make amends for that loss, and is 14/1 with bet365, while Justin Thomas is another prominent figure in the betting at 12/1 with Unibet, and has to be considered another star that should go deep into the competition.

Day The Selection

Jason Day is a player with a fine record in this tournament having first lifted the trophy in 2014, while two years later the Australian got the better of Louis Oosthuizen in the final, so it's surprising to see a man with huge pedigree in the event as big as 14/1 with William Hill, and if he can find his best form then has to be one to watch out for, and it's ironic that he will face Oosthuizen (66/1) in the group stages.

Best Of The Rest

Jordan Spieth is a 20/1 shot with bet365, and those odds could prove very generous if the American wizard can produce his best golf, while the likes of recent winner Paul Casey (22/1) and Phil Mickelson (25/1) add more depth to a contest that is a who's who of the golfing world, but it's Jason Day that can come out on top, and he can land a hat-trick of wins in the event.
