The QBE Shootout, which is hosted by World Golf Hall of Fame member Greg Norman, is proud to enter its 29th year.

QBE’s partnership will allow the Shootout to increase the tournament purse by $400,000 over the next three years. The 2016 purse was $3.1 million and will increase to $3.3 million this year, followed by a purse of $3.4 million in 2018 and in 2019 the 24-player field will compete for $3.5 million.
