The 2021 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play wraps up round-robin play on Friday, when one player each will advance from 16 groups. That sets up the bracket-style portion of the tournament the remainder of the weekend.

The tiebreaker scenarios are simple — if players finish with the same number of points, they go to a sudden-death playoff. There’s no head-to-head or total points tiebreakers based on previous matches.

None of the group winners are totally set entering Friday, but a few are close. Here’s the (blank) WGC Match Play bracket, standings for all 16 groups, and scenarios for each player to advance.
