Jordan Spieth is ready to take on some of the fiercest competitors at the WGC Dell Match Play this week.
Spieth – one of the favourites in the betting odds this week – has been grouped with Jamie Donaldson, Victor Dubuisson and Justin Thomas in Group One. Only the winner of each group will advance to the last 16 and the current world number one is well aware that he is up against some match play specialists.
"I thought it was a difficult group," he said to the European Tour official website.
"There's no easy group, but I thought I got a difficult draw. Justin is a great player. We had fun on Friday afternoon, unfortunately only one gets to advance.
"Victor, obviously with the success at this tournament, and I think with tougher conditions it's an advantage to him. It's an advantage to his game. He's Seve-like in what he can do around the greens.
"And then I've watched Jamie, first-hand watched Jamie in that final match of The Ryder Cup. A tough match play bracket."
Group matches will be played on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and the winner of each group advances to the last 16 on Saturday morning, with the quarter-finals on Saturday afternoon. The semi-finals will be held on Sunday morning with the final later the same day.
