The World Golf Championships Match Play event pits the top 64 players in the world in a tournament which will see one man standing – and close to $1.6 million richer – on Sunday.

But in a break from the usual lose-and-go-home format, this year’s Match Play event features a round-robin style, which ensures all players will be in action for three days.

Round-robin action begins Wednesday and will continue until Friday at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California.

There will be 16 four-player groups with the winner of each group advancing to the Round of 16 Saturday. Then it becomes one-and-done for the losers.

The quarterfinals will follow Saturday afternoon, with the semifinals Sunday morning and the championship match Sunday afternoon.

The top seed is Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 player in the world, and Masters winner Jordan Spieth is No. 2. Jason Day, the 7th-seed, is the defending champion.
