QBE Shootout Winners and History

Better known as the Shark Shootout, The QBE Shootout is a “Silly Season” team golf event hosted by Greg Norman annually in Naples, Florida. Originally held after the last money tournament of the season, it part of the beginning of the PGA Tour’s wraparound season.

It’s still the silly season.

The Shootout is a team stroke play event held over three days and 54 holes.

The first round is a scramble, where each player tees off, and the team decides which shot was better. The second is played from that ball, and so on. It’s the classic golf outing scramble format.

The second round is played in the Greensomes (Scotch Foursomes) format. Both players tee off, the better ball is chosen, and then alternate shots are used to complete the hole.

The final round is Four Ball (better ball, best ball). Each player plays his own ball from tee to green, and the lower score of the two on the team is used.

The event benefits Curesearch For Children’s Cancer.

QBE became name sponsor in 2017, following a six year run as the Franklin Templeton Shootout. QBE is an Australian insurance group.
