5How big is the field size?
6What is the format?
It’s a combination of stroke play and match play. Rounds 1, 2 and 3 will be stroke play, while Round 4 will be the newly created 6-hole match play.
7How does the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth format work?
The ISPS HANDA 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 tied 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.
8How do the final 24 players become 2 players?
Once the 24 players have been decided, the leading 8 players from that 24 are seeded into the second round of the match play. The remaining 16 players are split into 8 matches of 2 players and they play the first round of match play. Thus, 8 players will get knocked out of the tournament in the first round of the match play. Then, the 8 winners in the first round of match play will be paired against the 8 seeded players meaning the second round of match play will also have 8 matches of 2 players. From that point onward, each round of match play has half the number of players as the previous round until a winner is decided.
9What if players are tied for the 24th place following the third round?
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 the 18th.
10Is there any benefit to the leading players after the third round?
The top-8 players after the third round (54 holes) will be rewarded with automatic seeding into the second match play round.
11What if there is a tie for the top-8 seeds?
If players are tied 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.
12What is the “Knockout Hole”?
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 Country Club 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.
13How is the winner decided?
To win the tournament a player would need to survive three rounds of stroke play and up to five rounds of six-hole match play, depending on whether or not they gain a seeding.
