- Austin to host Match Play Championship from 2016-19
(Reuters) - The elite WGC-Match Play Championship will be staged in Austin, Texas, from 2016 to 2019 as part of a four-year deal with its new title sponsor, the International Federation of PGA Tours announced on Tuesday. Texas-based PC maker Dell, which has major sports sponsorship experience with Formula 1 and America's Cup, will take over as the event's title sponsor next year when the event will be renamed the WGC-Dell Match Play. "We're confident that Dell will find the World Golf Championships to be an extremely effective and valuable global marketing and business-to-business platform," PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement. Austin, the 11th-most populous city in the United States, last hosted a sanctioned PGA Tour event from 2003-2009 on the over-50s Champions Tour.
