LIV Golf Invitational Series Miami Team Championship Format
The LIV Golf Invitational Series Miami Team Championship format is a three-day event. The peloton is divided into groups in a team event with 12 four-person teams competing for a $50 million purse awarded to the top teams. There is no cut.
The 12 teams on the field are ranked based on team points earned by each team in the first seven events of the series. The winning team in each event earned 32 points, while teams finishing ninth through twelfth earned no points.
On the first day of the event, the top four teams will receive a bye. The teams ranked fifth through 12th will compete in four separate match play competitions. The fifth, sixth and seventh seeds will choose their opponents in order, with the eighth seed getting the last remaining team. All four competitions will begin simultaneously in a shotgun start. There will be three simultaneous matches: two singles matches and one alternating shots match, so all four players will compete against each other. Matches will all be played until a winner is determined, with each match winner earning 1 point for their team. The team with the most points wins this competition and advances to the semi-finals on day 2.
On Day 2 of the tournament, the top four teams will enter the competition and choose their opponents who survived Day 1 based on their overall standings. The same format will apply. The remaining four teams after Day 2 will advance to the final round.
On the third and final day of the tournament, the format changes. The 16 players from the four teams will compete as a duo, with the team captains playing together. The team total will be the four combined 18-hole scores of the players on the team. The team with the lowest total score will win.
In the event of a tie, a sudden death playoff will begin until a winner is determined.
