Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort Naples, 2620 Tiburón Drive, Naples, FL 34109
The QBE Shootout, which is hosted by World Golf Hall of Fame member Greg Norman, is proud to enter its 29th year. Thanks to the support of tournament sponsors, fans, volunteers and the Southwest Florida community, the Shootout has become one of the most prestigious and unique events on the PGA TOUR.
The 2017 field will consist of 24 professionals paired into 12 two-person teams. The QBE Shootout will once again feature a scramble format during the first round followed by a modified alternate shot format and a final-round better ball contest.
Harris English and Matt Kuchar won the QBE Shootout last year by one stroke over Steve Stricker and Jerry Kelly. It was the second title in three years for the team of English and Kuchar who are expected to defend their title this December.
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.
The QBE Shootout will also have a new broadcast partner and will return to a Sunday finish with the Golf Channel broadcasting all three competitive rounds. Live coverage will air on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Shootout will also be televised around the globe via the PGA TOUR’s international distribution network.
