Sunday always brings about a lot of excitement in a golf tournament. This is when the final round is usually played at stroke-play events, but that’s where the WGC-Dell Match Play is unique. 

This Match Play event has once again proved that even the best in the world stumble when it comes to individual battles, as the tournament does not have a Top 16 seed for the first time since it introduced the group play format in 2015

Who are all the golfers in the final four? 

The tournament has sent home all the top seeds much to everyone’s surprise. All the players who are remaining are ranked above #30 in the official world golf rankings. It is impossible that a fan would’ve picked this exact bracket during the start of the tournament. 

Victor Perez: Frenchman Perez defeated veteran Sergio Garcia in the quarterfinal and it was by an easy margin. Perez was up by four holes after the par-4 15th, and Garcia had no choice but to concede the match. 

Billy Horschel: Horschel is yet another surprise entrant into the final four at WGC-Dell Match Play 2021. After trailing almost the entire match to #21 seed Tommy Fleetwood, Horschel made a last-moment surge and won the quarterfinal through a playoff hole. 

Matt Kuchar: 2013 champion Matt Kuchar displayed a clinical performance in the last eight against Brian Harman and won the match 2&1. He also finished runner-up here in 2019 and is currently unbeaten in this edition heading into the semi-final. 

Scottie Scheffler: While Matt Kuchar is the favorite to win at Austin, his semi-final opponent Scottie Scheffler is the underdog. The 24-year-old sent home Jon Rahm in the quarterfinals, and the University of Texas alum is a player to watch out in the final rounds.
