2022 WGC MATCHPLAYY – WAGGLE DUFF RULES & PLAYER LIST

Welcome back all to my favorite Waggle Duff event of the year! The WGC Matchplay is a super fun Waggle Duff event, particularly throughout the group stage.

Before I dive into the week, you can find the overall League Table here

I also have been asked about what weeks we are covering, its clear this year is difficult with time so far, but I have planned everything here

THIS WEEK!

The WGC MATCHPLAY CHAMPIONSHIP is a little different from your typical Waggle Duff event. So there will be a change to the structure of WAGGLE DUFF, points bare with me!

In the WGC MATCHPLAY, 64 players are placed into 16 groups of 4 players (quick maths), all of which will play each other in a round-robin.

The 16 players that win each group then go into a knockout tournament for the trophy!

PICKING YOUR TEAM

Below are the players for the DELL WGC MATCHPLAY 2021.

You have £160 to spend on your team and select 5 players!

A players (£) Value is determined by their seed.

Maximum spend of £160! – Strictly maximum spend!

(Your first pick is your captain who will score you double points)

Tweet your team of 5 to @WaggleDuff on Twitter, please use the hastag #waggle69

E.G

  1. Tyrell Hatton £57
  2. Paul Casey £49
  3. Sergio Garcia £26
  4. Andy Sullivan £8
  5. Ian Poulter £5

Total Team Value = £145 (cannot be above £160)

If a player drops out, you can swap your team up until the first tee-shot on Wednesday.

However, if your player drops out unknowingly, then that player will be replaced with the incoming player.

Regardless of changes in the field, and the seeding leading up to the event, the seeds/ value below is what is to be used for Waggle Duff.
