the 10 best group pairings matches to watch this week

Tom Kim and his caddy share a laugh as they exit the 18th green during the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this month.  The 20-year-old rising star is ranked No. 19 in the world and finds himself in the group of defending champion and world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler in this week's WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play tournament.

The best of the PGA Tour – 64 of the top 77 players in the world – are at the Austin Country Club this week for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, which features 48 winners on the PGA Tour combined with 13 Match Play rookies.

For those unfamiliar with the format, here’s how: The 64 players are seeded and divided into 16 different groups. Golfers play matches against everyone in their group Wednesday through Friday, earning a point for a win and half a point for a tie. The 16 group winners with the most points then advance to the knockout stages with the round of 16 on Saturday morning, the quarter-finals on Saturday afternoon, the semi-finals on Sunday morning, the final and the third-place games on Sunday afternoon.
