What is the format?

The 48 players will be drafted into 12 four-man teams and there will be a shotgun start.

That means that all the players will tee off at the same time at a different hole across the course.

Events are held over three days and 54 holes – as opposed to 72 holes and four days like on the PGA and European Tours – and there will be no cut.

There will be an individual and team event held simultaneously over the course of the event.

How can I watch it?

The event will be streamed live on LIVGolf.com as well as YouTube and Facebook.

The coverage will begin at 9am ET on Thursday – 2pm local time in the UK.

A list of broadcasters for television coverage hasn’t yet been made available.
