Report: PGA Tour, LPGA planning to turn QBE Shootout into a mixed-team event

News

The Shootout, an unofficial money event on the PGA Tour that returns this week at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Fla., currently features 12 two-player teams competing in scramble, alternate-shot and best-ball formats across 54 holes. The event has occasionally featured women in the field, including this year with Nelly Korda and Lexi Thompson. However, a uniform mixed-team format has not been seen on the PGA Tour and LPGA since 1999 with the former JC Penney Classic.

According to Ferguson, the PGA Tour had been working on converting the former World Cup of Golf into a mixed-team event, but progress was slowed when the COVID-19 pandemic arrived.

Along with Korda and Thompson this week’s QBE field features Max Homa, Cameron Young, Sahith Theegala, Billy Horschel, Harris English and Kevin Kisner.
