Donald has defending champion Ross Fisher, who defeated Anthony Kim of the United States 4 and 3 in the 36-hole final in 2009, in his group along with American Ryan Moore.

“To be the World Match Play champion for almost two years has quite a nice ring to it,” said Fisher, who will not start the defense of his title until Friday. “I’ve got good memories of this place, so hopefully they’ll come flooding back. I’ll just try to do the same things I did two years ago.”

Westwood is joined by Denmark’s Anders Hansen and Australia’s Aaron Baddeley, while Oosthuizen and McDowell are in the same group with Jhonattan Vegas of Venezuela. Kaymer was drawn with Korean pair Y.E. Yang and Noh Seung-yul.

Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn flew to Spain as first reserve, but returned home Monday following the death of his father after a long illness.

The event moved to Spain for the first time in 2009, having previously been played since 1964 at Wentworth, England.
