New group format and seeding process explanation The field was finalized on Monday, April 20, but the seeding for the tournament is based off the most recent Official World Golf Ranking, released Sunday, April 26, following the conclusion of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, to ensure the field reflects the most recent OWGR to more accurately seed the players.

The 64-player Cadillac Match Play field will be divided into 16 four-player groups. Each group will play round-robin matches within their group on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The player with the best record in each of the four player groups advances to the Round of 16 for single-elimination match play (in the event of a two-way tie in a group, head-to-head match results will be used as the tiebreaker; a three-way tie will require a sudden-death stroke play hole-by-hole-playoff). The Round of 16 will be played Saturday morning, followed by the Quarterfinals on Saturday afternoon.

The Semifinals will be Sunday morning, followed by the Championship Match and Consolation Match on Sunday afternoon. With this format change, fans are guaranteed to see the field in its entirety during the first three days of competition before players begin being eliminated. The top seed for each of the 16 four-player groups will be the top 16 players in order of their position in the Official World Golf Ranking. However, on Monday, April 27, at 12 p.m. ET, the remaining three players in each group will be determined by a blind draw from each of three pools depending on their standing in the OWGR. Under the guidance of the PGA TOUR Competitions Officials, the drawings will be from Golf Channel’s Golf Central studio in Orlando as part of a live telecast.
