Golfers will play in teams of two over the course of the four rounds, meaning there will be a pair of winners. The first and third rounds consist of best ball and the second and fourth are played using alternate shot. Thirty-five teams, plus ties, make the cut. The top players from the PGA Tour priority rankings who choose to participate get a spot in the tournament. They then select a partner, who either has to have PGA Tour status or a sponsor exemption. The tournament will be played at TPC Louisiana in Avondale, Louisiana, which is outside New Orleans and has been the event’s location every year since 2005.MORE: Watch the Zurich Classic live and on-demand with fuboTV (7-day free trial)C.T.
