During the Shootout, all 10 players start out playing the first hole together. The player with the highest gross score on the hole is eliminated. In the case of a tie, a skills contest (a putt-off or chip-off) will be used to determine who proceeds. On each hole one player is eliminated until on the final hole just two players remain. The format is both dramatic and unpredictable, and ensures exciting viewing for the spectators and TV audience. This form of competition was utilized in the Tour s first major Championship, The Trump Million Dollar Invitational Televised on ESPN in 2006. 54 Hole event purse is also $500,000.
