The 2014 Franklin Templeton Shootout will take place in December 11 to 13 at the Tiburon Gold Club at Naples in Florida. Started in 1989 this is an unofficial money team event which takes place in the PGA Tour December wrap-around seasonal break calendar.
The Tiburon Golf Club is 7, 288 yards long, a par of 72 and was designed by Greg Norman while the tournament prize money is $ 3, 100, 000.00 but there are no FedEx points for this event. The tournament record score is held by Fred Couples and Raymond Floyd in 1990 when they won with an aggregate score of 182. The defending champion is Harris English and Matt Kuchar.
This year’s playing field consists of 24 players divided into 12 teams. Eight of them are from the top 30 players in the world while six of them are 2014 Ryder Cup participants. There are a further five major championship winners among the field as well. Again like last week’s Hero Challenge Patrick Reed has agreed to be the last minute replacement for an injured Chris Kirk. Incidentally last week Patrick Reed had to be a last minute replacement for the ailing Jim Furyk.
