Sharma to face Garcia in opener

Spain's Jon Rahm

"He has a great match play record", said the reigning Open champion.

Defending Race to Dubai champion Tommy Fleetwood will square off against Daniel Berger, who has four top 14 finishes this year, and Kevin Chappell, who tied for seventh at Bay Hill. Shubhankar feels that it is a great group to be a part of and added that he had to be at his best to get results. Trash talk, I don't think, has started.

"I've seen it first-hand when he's been at his best and we have history together in a couple of different play-offs, which is a match play scenario".

If Frittelli is to overcome the odds and win this weekend, he will first need to make it out of Group Seven which is made up of Sergio Garcia, Shubhankar Sharma and Xander Schauffele.

Even though Reed and Ian Poulter are passionate players known as good match-play competitors, Spieth doesn't think there's a specific personality type more equipped to handle that format.

While the Indian prospect will be making his debut at the WGC Match Play Championship, which is exclusive to the leading 64 players in the world, Shubhankar will be able to lean on some match play experience following his triumph at the All Indian Amateur in 2013.

World number one Dustin Johnson opens his WGC-Dell Match Play title defence in Texas on Wednesday in a risky group that includes fellow American Kevin Kisner, Canadian Adam Hadwin and Austrian Bernd Wiesberger.

The latter he's tried to implement into his own game at times, particularly during match play where Spieth noted he tends to take more chances instead of paying attention to the score. "So I absolutely love match play as it's a lot of fun and you go for a few shots which you don't normally do in stroke play events", Shubhankar said.

"You just hope that whatever is happening is obviously dealt with as quickly as possible".

In-form Thai, Kiradech Aphibarnrat was in upbeat mood after being drawn into Group 3 alongside World No 3 Jon Rahm of Spain and American duo Chez Reavie and Keegan Bradley.

Japanese players Hideki Matsuyama and Yusaku Miyazato are in group five along with Patrick Cantlay and Cameron Smith. Li faces Reed in his first match tomorrow.
