The League is a dual championship, an individual Player Championship and a Team Championship, the best of both worlds
As such, we believe that we have created the ultimate professional golf experience. The magic and drama of team golf together with the tee to tee race for one player to be crowned world champion. Fantasy golf made real.
The Player Championship
Every player for themselves, traditional stroke play
Playing for a purse of $20m and a first prize of $4m, every week for 17 weeks
The Team Championship
Runs in parallel to the Player Championship (18 weeks)
12 teams of 4
Only 2 scores count, per team, per day
$1m team bonus each week for 17 weeks
Week 18, season finale and the Play-Offs
Will there be Relegation & Promotion like other leagues?
Yes, there will. As a competitive league, it’s essential that participation is based on merit.
The reason every shot truly counts, the reason why team picks really matter and the reason why the League will go down to the wire every season
High drama, high emotion and, with a $20m winner takes all purse, high stakes
All 12 regular teams will participate, with teams seeded based on their league standing after week 17.
What’s the format?
3 knock-out rounds and the grand final – all played out over just 2 days. Every stage of the play-offs will feature 2 rounds of singles match play and one round of either foursomes, greensomes or fourball.
How does the seeding work?
Seed 1 starts each match 1UP (bar the Final)
Seeds 1, 2, 3 and 4 get a bye to the Quarter Finals
The higher seed gets to choose its opposing team and the order in which its players go out
