2015 WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship groups, round-robin matches



The 2015 WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship introduces a new format this year, replacing the bracket-style, one-and-done format with a group-based system that leads into a 16-man weekend showdown.

On Monday, the PGA Tour conducted a blind draw to set the 16 groups. Each group is anchored with an A player, identified based on the top 16 players in the Official World Golf Ranking in the field. Then a player was selected from 16-player Pools B, C and D, organized by ranking in order.
