The Dell Technologies Match Play returns for its fifth playing at Austin CC after being canceled in 2020 following the onset of COVID-19.

At the last playing in 2019, Kisner holed a 20-foot birdie putt to close out Matt Kuchar, 3 and 2, to win the event, earning his third PGA TOUR title and first World Golf Championships victory. In the 2019-20 season, the South Carolina native made 21 starts, qualified for each of the three FedExCup Playoffs events and went on the finish ranked No. 23 in the FedExCup standings. Most recently in the TOUR’s 2020-21 season, Kisner nearly re-entered the winners circle at The RSM Classic but ultimately fell in a playoff to Robert Streb. He is currently ranked No. 36 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
