Q: What’s the bottom line?
- 156 players start for three rounds of strokeplay
- A standard cut to the leading 65 pros (and ties) will be made after 36 holes
- A further cut after 54 will reduce the field to 24 players for a final day of match play action
- If there are any ties for 24th position, a sudden-death play-off will determine the qualifiers
- Sunday will bring five rounds of six-hole match play battles – Super 6
- The top eight players after 54 holes will receive a bye into the second match play round
- Any ties for the top eight will be decided by a score count back based on the last 18, 9, 6, 3 and 1 holes
- In Super 6, any results not determined after six holes of match play will be decided by playing a 'Knockout Hole'
- This will be a purpose-built 93-yard par three using the 18th green at Lake Karrinyup
- Only one man will be left standing
Q: What hole will be used for the play-off for those tied for 24th after 54 holes?
A: The play-off hole will be the 444-yard par four 18th
Q: How are players who don’t finish in the top eight after 54 holes drawn for the Super 6?
A: The remaining 16 players (those in positions 9 – 24) will be randomly paired and will play the first round of match play. The eight winners from those matches will advance to play the eight seeds in the second round of match play.
Q: Is there a third/fourth play-off?
A: Not only is there an additional third/fourth match for the losing semi-finalists, there are also further matches for the losing players in the quarter finals to decide positions five through to eight in the final results.
Q: Which holes are being used at Lake Karrinyup for the Super 6 matches?
A: All knockout matches will be played over six holes, being the tenth (par four), second (par four), eighth (par three), 11th (par five), 12th (par three) and 18th (par four). These are subject to change.
Q: What are the particulars around the extra knockout hole after tied Super 6 matches?
A: Any matches tied after the six holes will proceed to the knockout hole – a specially-constructed 93-yard par three with a new tee on the right side of the 18th fairway, playing to the 18th green – where a hole-by-hole sudden-death play-off will be used to determine the winner. The player with the honour will be determined by coin toss.
Q: How will the prize money be structured?
- Final positions 1-8 and resultant prize money will be determined based on the results of the six hole match play knockouts on the final day.
- Losers of the second round matches will be ranked 9 through 16 based on their 54 hole (3 rounds) stroke play total and prize money allocated accordingly
- Losers of the first round matches will be ranked 17 through 24 based on their 54 hole (3 round) stroke play total and prize money allocated accordingly
- Players finishing 25th – 65th and any ties will be ranked on their 54 hole (3 round) stroke play total and prize money allocated accordingly
