  • Move to WGC Match Play. The sponsor name seems to change frequently, so since this refers to the tournament in all its incarnations, it would seem better to just use the consistent name. There is usage for this in reliable sources too.[1]  — Amakuru (talk) 17:35, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
    • Agree, non-sponsor name, but use WGC-Match Play for consistency with other WGC events. Then move category as well.Tewapack (talk) 18:16, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
      Not totally convinced about that. What does the hyphen represent? The WGC and Match are not linked as far as I know. We wouldn't say FIFA-World Cup or AFC-Championship Game, would we?  — Amakuru (talk) 16:06, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
      • All the individual years tournaments include the hyphen, as does the official name, as do the other WGC events. Tewapack (talk) 16:25, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
        They include the hyphen when they're also including the sponsor name. This is I assume an attempt to say it's a joint effort between the WGC and Dell. When spelled out without a sponsor I'm not seeing hyphens used.[2][3][4]. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 16:32, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
        I see plenty of examples here (not sure how to get google to display only hyphenated matches). Tewapack (talk) 16:37, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Move to WGC Match Play. This form is established in news sources,[5] and lets us avoid conflict whenever the sponsor changes.--Cúchullain t/c 13:24, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment: It looks like we're headed towards a non-sponsored title. If so, then we probably ought to move the Invitational and Championship pages likewise (I'm not sure yet about the Champions). It looks like standard usage is to use the hyphen only with a sponsor name. pʰeːnuːmuː →‎ pʰiːnyːmyː → ‎ɸinimi → ‎fiɲimi 14:26, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
    • Not sure about the others - "Match Play" is descriptive to the event, "Invitational", "Championship", and "Champions" aren't. I could see a future sponsor wanting to change the name of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to, say, WGC-Foo Championship or WGC-Foo Challenge, dropping link to "Invitational".
