In 2016, the event moved to the Austin Country Club, and since the move, it has quickly become one of the most loved stops on the Tour. Thanks to the course, the field, and the local atmosphere, the golf world almost universally raves about this event. To get a better sense of why everybody loves this event so much, we spent two days out at this year’s Dell Match Play.
