About the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth:
Headlined by World Number 8 Patrick Reed and World Number 9 Alex Noren, the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth is set to revolutionise tournament golf.
To be played at Lake Karrinyup Country Club from 16-19 February, 2017 and co-sanctioned by the PGA Tour of Australasia and European Tour, the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth will combine 54 holes of traditional stroke play across the first three days with an exciting knockout match play format for the fourth and final round.
A regular cut will fall after 36 holes before the field is then further reduced to the top-24 players following 54 holes of regulation play, with any ties for 24th place being decided by a play-off. Those remaining players will then earn their places in the six-hole shoot-out.
Any matches tied after the six holes will be decided by playing the new Shootout Hole - a purpose-built 90-metre hole which will be constructed at Lake Karrinyup, with a new tee placed adjacent to the 18th fairway and utilising the 18th green.
The Shootout Hole will be played once and if a winner is still not decided, the competitors will return to the new tee and take on a nail-biting decider, with the victor decided by a nearest-the-pin contest where only the first shot counts.
That player will then progress to the next round of the match play or, in the case of the final match, win the tournament.
The ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth is a revolutionary golf tournament designed to retain the traditions of the game whilst appealing to a broader audience.
