AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Tiger Woods is at another new golf course for a World Golf Championships event and faces another player he doesn't know.

Woods, who arrived Monday and played nine holes at Austin Country Club, opens the Dell Technologies Match Play against Aaron Wise, an NCAA champion from Oregon and the PGA Tour rookie of the year.

Wise will be the 21st player who had never played with Woods since he returned from back surgeries that kept him out of golf for most of two years.
