How does the World Super 6 Perth format work?
The World Super 6 Perth will combine 54 holes of traditional stroke play across the first three days, with an exciting six-hole knockout match play format for the fourth and final round.
A standard cut to the leading 65 professionals and ties will be implemented after the second round (36 holes).
The field will be further reduced with a second cut being made after the third round (54 holes) to the leading 24 players who will battle it out over six-hole matches until one man is left standing.
If after the third round there are any ties for the 24th position, the players to advance will be determined by a sudden death playoff after the conclusion of the third round. The playoff hole is yet to be determined.
The top-8 players after the third round (54 holes) will be rewarded with automatic seeding into the second match play round.
If there are ties for the top-8 positions they will be decided by a score count back based on the last 18, 9, 6, 3 and 1 holes.
In the Knockout round, any matches not decided after the six hole match play will be decided by playing the new ‘Shootout hole’.
A purpose built 90-metre hole 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 out once and if players remain tied, they will return to the new tee and continue to play from this tee until a winner is determined by stroke play. This person, will then progress to the next round of the Knockout or, in the case of the final match, win the tournament.
