2018 QBE Shootout Preview
Posted on December 03 2018
For 30 years, the QBE Shootout has been one of the most popular team events on the PGA Tour. Hosted by Australian golf legend Greg Norman, past champions in this event have been some of the game’s best. Last year, the duo of Sean O’Hair and Steve Stricker defeated the Irish team of Shane Lowry and Graeme McDowell. They will pair up again to defend their title against some powerhouse teams, including Davis Love III and Patton Kizzire, Bryson DeChambeau and Kevin Na, and Tony Finau alongside LPGA Tour star Lexi Thompson.
Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida has hosted this tournament since its inception. The format changes throughout the three rounds: The first round utilitzes a two-man scramble format, the 2nd round is a modified alternate shot, and the final round is a two-man best-ball format.
