What happened to the Match Play tournament this year?

Just curious, but what happened to the match play tournament this year...the one where the French guy made it to the finals and had several outstanding shots out of the cactus rough?

There's something about it today on PGA Tour.com. Moving to Harding Park and played from April 29-May 3rd this year and then moving to Austin, Texas. Dell is sponsoring it thru 2019. I believe that they've also changed the format, as they were having trouble getting players from around the world who might play one and done. Still 64 players divided into 4 groups. I guess the players weren't excited about Dove Mt.

Also, they said there was trouble getting sponsors when Phil and Tiger and other big names might not be around on the week-end. This might be sponsor-driven.

Yes, now I remember them talking about that last year....about people having to come all the way over here from east coast and be one-and-done.

Too bad, I liked Dove Mtn.

I think that sometimes they had snow and ice there and it was difficult to get the day in. They had trouble getting some of the Euros here with no guarantee of more than one day, but that shouldn't be a problem as most of them live in AZ or FL. LOL
