Full-field scores from the QBE Shootout


The field consists of 12 two-man teams. They will compete in modified alternate shot in Round 2 and in a better-ball (four-ball) in Sunday’s final round.

In modified alternate shot, both players tee off and the team chooses which second shot to play. The player who did not hit the chosen tee shot will hit the second shot and they will continue to alternate until the hole is completed.

In better-ball, both players play their own ball for each hole and the lower score is recorded.

Kevin Tway and Rory Sabbatini are the defending champions. They are three off the 18-hole lead after an opening 59.
