WGC-Dell Technologies Round of 16 matches and tee times

The second World Golf Championships event of the year has reached the weekend, and play will continue at Austin Country Club with the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play field of 64 now pared down to the Round of 16.

While each player in the field was guaranteed to play three matches this week, the format moves to single elimination for the remaining four rounds. The sixteen players in Saturday’s morning matches will be pared down to eight for Saturday afternoon’s quarterfinals.

Tiger Woods, playing for the first time since 2013, made it out of group play and will face Rory McIlroy in the most anticipated matchup of the event thus far.

McIlroy went undefeated in his three previous matches, while Tiger won two and lost one. The duo will tee off at 9:30 a.m. ET on Saturday.

You can find the tee times for all of Saturday morning’s Round of 16 matches below.

WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Round of 16 tee times (ET)

8:35 a.m. – Louis Oosthuizen vs. Marc Leishman

Leishman won all three of his group-stage matches, while Oosthuizen lost only his opening match to Kyle Stanley, 3&2.

8:46 a.m. – HaoTong Li vs. Kevin Kisner

Kisner birdied the third hole of a sudden-death playoff against Ian Poulter to make it out of the group stage. In their original first-round match, Poulter beat Kisner 2&1. Li also won a playoff with a birdie on the first hole to beat Alex Noren and punch his ticket into the Round of 16.

8:57 a.m. – Francesco Molinari vs. Paul Casey

This European pairing should be great theater. Molinari is undefeated through three matches while Casey — who is coming off a win at last week’s Valspar Championship — is also undefeated, winning two of his matches and tying the other, with Charles Howell III.

9:08 a.m.- Kevin Na vs. Justin Rose

Na is the highest-seeded player (No. 57) to make it out of the group stage into the Round of 16. Na went 2-0-1 over the course of his three matches to lead his group by a half point. Rose, meanwhile, had a tight match with Gary Woodland on Friday to see who would earn the right to move on from the group stage. Rose prevailed on the 18th hole, 1-up.

9:19 a.m. – Lucas Bjerregaard vs. Henrik Stenson

Bjerregaard is the second-highest-seeded player to make it out of the group stage (he came in as No. 50). He never lost a match against groupmates Justin Thomas, Keegan Bradley and Matt Wallace. Stenson is another somewhat unexpected victor. The Swede went 3-0-0 against opponents Jim Furyk, Phil Mickelson and Jason Day.

9:30 a.m. – Tiger Woods vs. Rory McIlory

Tiger needed to win on Friday in order to have a chance to make it out of the group stage, and he did, besting Patrick Cantlay 4&2. McIlroy has been red-hot, and is undefeated in three matches. This one should be Saturday’s barn-burner.

9:41 a.m. – Tyrrell Hatton vs. Matt Kuchar

Both Hatton and Kuchar went 2-0-1 over the course of their group matches. The winner of their matchup will face the winner of Branden Grace and Sergio Garcia’s match.

9:52 a.m. – Branden Grace vs. Sergio Garcia

Grace was undefeated in three matches against Hideki Matsuyama, Dustin Johnson and Chez Reavie while Garcia won two of his group matches but lost to Patrick Reed on Friday. Luckily for Garcia, Reed had a tie on his record, so Garcia moved on from his group by a half point.
