The first World Golf Championship of 2022 is here and it's time to play some match play.

The groupings are out for this week's WGC-Match Play at the much-loved Austin Country Club in Texas, where we'll see three days of round-robin match play before the final two days of knockout golf. Players will receive 1 point for a win and 1/2 a point for a tie in the round-robin format, with sudden death playoffs taking place in the event of ties.

The stellar field of 64, featuring nearly all of the world's best players barring the top-10 omissions of Rory McIlroy, Cameron Smith and Sam Burns, is broken up into 16 groups of four, who'll each play each other on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The winner of each group will progress into the last-16 for a packed weekend of action that encompasses the last-16, quarter finals, semi finals and final.

World No.1 Jon Rahm headlines the field alongside numbers 2-5 Collin Morikawa, Viktor Hovland, Patrick Cantlay and last year's runner-up Scottie Scheffler. Defending champion Billy Horschel is also back to defend his crown.
