The QBE Shootout tournament has announced the 12 two-person teams for the 2022 QBE Shootout. This year’s tournament will be held December 7 – 11, marking its 22nd year at Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples.

The 34th edition of the Shootout will feature two LPGA players: world No.7 Lexi Thompson and Nelly Korda, the 4th ranked player in the world. Thompson has competed in the Shootout five times since 2016. Her best finish is a T4 with Tony Finau in 2017. Korda will be making her debut.

“QBE is proud to be sponsoring the QBE Shootout again this year, and we are thrilled with the field announced today,” said QBE North America CEO, Todd Jones.

“The quality of the players competing makes for an exciting event, and I am particularly pleased that two LGPA stars – Lexi Thompson and Nelly Korda – will join the field in Naples.”

This year’s field will also feature five of the top 30 and nine of the top 50 ranked players in the world including No. 16 Max Homa, No. 17 Cameron Young, No. 18 Billy Horschel, No. 23 Brian Harman, No. 27 Sepp Straka, No. 31 Kevin Kisner, No. 33 Corey Conners, No. 36 Tom Hoge and No. 37 K.H. Lee.

Conners, Lee, Homa, Horschel, Kisner and Young also competed in the 2022 Presidents Cup.

Unfortunately, this year’s field will not include the 2021 winning team, Jason Kokrak and Kevin Na, who have been banned by the PGA Tour for playing in LIV Golf events.

Golf Channel will broadcast Friday’s first round while the weekend coverage will be split between Golf Channel and NBC.

The QBE Shootout will once again feature a scramble format during the first round, a modified alternate shot format on Saturday, and a final-round better ball on Sunday.

CureSearch for Children’s Cancer will continue to be the tournament’s primary charitable beneficiary. Since 1989, the Shootout has raised more than $15 million for charitable causes.

    • Yes. Thanks for heads up. Those were originally released teams back in October. Thought it was odd that Kuchar and English broke up.
