AUSTIN, Texas – World No. 1 Brooks Koepka has committed to the 2020 World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play March 25-29 at Austin Country Club, tournament officials announced Thursday.
The seven-time PGA TOUR winner will make his fifth appearance at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play to compete in the only individual match-play event on the PGA TOUR schedule.
Koepka, the 2019 PGA TOUR Player of the Year, has been World No. 1 for 48 consecutive weeks and won his first World Golf Championships title in July at the 2019 World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. After posting three victories in only 21 starts during the 2018-19 season, Koepka has only made two starts this season before injuring his knee and missing the rest of the fall. In four prior appearances at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, Koepka has advanced out of the group stage four times with a T5 in 2016 and T9 in 2017.
Three-time PGA TOUR winner Kevin Kisner is set to defend his title against 64 of the world’s best in what’s become the must-attend event of the spring in Austin when the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play returns to Austin for the fifth consecutive year.
Two former Longhorns, Jordan Spieth and Scottie Scheffler, are each hoping to remain inside the top 64 when the qualification deadline hits following THE PLAYERS Championship on March 15. Scheffler, a PGA TOUR rookie, is No. 53 in the Official World Golf Rankings, while Spieth is No. 55.
