AUSTIN, Texas: Dustin Johnson is one victory away from something not even Tiger Woods has accomplished: a sweep of the four World Golf Championships.All that remains is the Dell Technologies Match Play, and Johnson has to be considered a strong favorite. The Match Play begins Wednesday with three rounds of group play, preceded by endless speculation about who has the best chance to advance out of the 16 groups of four players, when no one ever knows what to expect, including the players.Johnson has only major champions in his group -- Jimmy Walker (PGA Championship), Martin Kaymer (PGA, U.S. Open), Webb Simpson (U.S. Open).Tiger Woods was the last player to be the No. 1 seed in successive years -- 2008 when he won, 2009 when he lost in the second round to Tim Clark in his return from knee surgery.McIlroy was a top seed twice and the only No. 1 seed to win.That wasn't a WGC until 2009, and Woods only played it twice.
