The GolfSixes is a brand new event on the European Tour in 2017. This tournament features 16 two-man teams with each team representing a country in match play. Uniquely, each match is only six holes and the teams play in a Greensomes format where every player tees off but then each each team selects the best tee shot and then plays alternate shot until the next hole. 

On Saturday the teams will be split into four groups featuring four teams each. The top two teams from each group then advance to knockout play on Sunday with quarterfinal, semifinal and finals matches, plus matches to determine 3rd and 4th place being played.
