Is golf moving in a new direction?
Two weeks and two new formats introduced onto the circuit. Last week saw the PGA Tour host a team event for the first time since 1981 and it's safe to say it was a huge success. The players were able to choose their partner for the week, providing us with a little insight into the relationships amongst players on Tour. Playing two rounds foursomes and two rounds 4BBB, Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith came out eventual winners but only after a four-hole playoff against Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown on Monday morning.
This week sees the European Tour take centre stage in trying to revitalise golf to the masses with their GolfSixes event. There will be 16 two-man teams competing over six holes in a series of head-to-head matches, with one team being crowned champions come Sunday afternoon. The six holes all differ drastically; from music and pyrotechnics on the first tee to a long drive competition on the third to a nearest the pin on the fifth.
It promises to be an exciting event but only time will tell whether it catches on and helps grow the game of golf. In the meantime, watch our GolfSixes video here.
