The 2021 WGC-Dell Match Play tournament has been an exciting event, with some of the world’s top golfers taking the course to battle it out for the title. As the knockout rounds approach, there are a few potential matches you won’t want to miss.
One potential matchup to keep an eye on is Scheffler vs. Sam Burns. Not only are these two players exceptional golfers, but they’re also good friends and roommates on the road. While their friendship will undoubtedly be put aside on the course, their familiarity with one another could make for a compelling match.
Another potential matchup that golf fans may be interested in is Scheffler vs. Cameron Young. Young’s recent pickup of Paul Tesori reminded some of Scheffler’s acquisition of Ted Scott, which led to a successful partnership for both. It will be interesting to see how Young performs under the guidance of Tesori, and whether he can emulate the success Scheffler had with Scott.
Finally, a matchup between Kurt Kitayama and Rory McIlroy would be another one to watch. These two players had a thrilling showdown in the fall at THE CJ CUP in South Carolina, and their differing styles make for a fascinating match. McIlroy is known for his smooth swing, while Kitayama’s slower backswing builds up considerable power despite his smaller frame.
As the knockout rounds approach, it’s hard to predict which matchups will ultimately emerge, but these potential matchups are certainly ones to keep an eye on.
