SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Tony Finau will return to the PGA Tour this week as he prepares for the upcoming WGC Dell Technologies Match Play. He has been drawn into Group 12 alongside Jason Kokrak, Will Zalatoris, and Dylan Frittelli.

Finau will begin the week playing against Dylan Frittelli on Thursday, March 25 with his tee time expected for 11:26 a.m.

Then, his second match will come against Will Zalatoris on Thursday before finally playing Jason Kokrak on Saturday.

Finau is currently ranked as the 12th best golfer in the field. Kokrak ranks 29th, Zalatoris 40th, and Frittelli 64th.

Finau’s Return

Finau returns to the PGA Tour after taking a week’s break following his missed cut at The Players Championship. His missed cut was the first for Finau since August.

The following two weeks will be important for Finau to find his early year form ahead of The Masters which is slated to begin on April 8th. Following this week’s event, Finau will likely play in the Valero Texas Open to further finalize his preparation ahead of The Masters, however, he is yet to commit to the Valero.
