Event Format

How does the World Super 6 Perth format work?

The World Super 6 Perth will combine 54 holes of traditional stroke play across the first three days, with an exciting six-hole knockout match play format for the fourth and final round.

A standard cut to the leading 65 professionals and ties will be implemented after the second round (36 holes).

The field will be further reduced with a second cut being made after the third round (54 holes) to the leading 24 players who will battle it out over six-hole matches until one man is left standing.

If after the third round there are any ties for the 24th position, the players to advance will be determined by a sudden death playoff after the conclusion of the third round. The playoff hole is yet to be determined.

The top-8 players after the third round (54 holes) will be rewarded with automatic seeding into the second match play round.

If there are ties for the top-8 positions they will be decided by a score count back based on the last 18, 9, 6, 3 and 1 holes.

In the Knockout round, any matches not decided after the six hole match play will be decided by playing the new ‘Shootout hole’.

A purpose built 90-metre hole will be constructed at Lake Karrinyup with a new tee placed adjacent to the 18th fairway and utilising the 18th green.

The Shootout hole will be played out once and if players remain tied, they will return to the new tee and continue to play from this tee until a winner is determined by stroke play. This person, will then progress to the next round of the Knockout or, in the case of the final match, win the tournament.

They used this format for the Surf Coast Knockout on the Australian Tour in January 2011. That time it was top 32 progressing to the knockout stage on the Sunday, but otherwise it was basically the same.

Can't say I like this hybrid format. I'm sure it will be exciting on the Sunday, but Saturday could be pretty dull.

So qualifiers 9-24 play off to meet qualifiers 1-8
So the winner could play 30+ holes in the day

WHATS the 6 holes they play the knockout matches over,are they 1 to 6,then winners hang around and meert each other over holes 7 to 12 etc,
or is it a redraw after each knockout match,could be carnage and confusion with some winning 4 up on the 4th and others needing extra holes,with only 2 standout players on form cant see the seeding for knockout games meaning much

The Sixes event in England could actually be quite fun, I reckon, this thing though is complete nonsense.  If they're so confident it's an exciting new idea why have 54 holes of strokeplay first?

obviously you have to think it's quite a random format but couldn't resist Louis Oost at 10s

if he can make the knockout then he'll have a good shout as finished 2nd in the world matchplay to Day, and noone of that standard to worry about here.

I'm a bit peed off. Having not checked the (silly) format and had a bet on Mr Rumford - As I type 3 shots clear nearing the end of R3 - I now discover he might just as well been in 7th place for all the difference it makes.
Instead of being about 1.8 or less at this point he's still 6.2

yeah and the guy who wins by five in the normal event never wins in this sort of scenario, it's sods law

i actually think this tournament has worked quite well, even though it would still be better off as a once in a moon thing rather than overtaking regular stroke play events.

Report Hank Hill February 19, 2017 12:43 AM GMT
I think this format could be ok given some tweaking. Being 3rd rd leader is not compensated enough merely by getting a bye with the other 7 of the top 8. I think 3rd rd leader should be given automatic entry in to semi final. My idea may not work, i haven't thought through the logistics totally tbh, but I fail to see how being 3rd rd leader can get same reward as player in 8th.

All that's been done here is an unnecessary playoff has been created at the end of a golf tournament, where there probably wouldn't been one. Which only really affects the poor sod who would have won in normal time.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat claimed a 2-and-1 victory over James Nitties with a sensational eagle-birdie finish. The World Super 6 Perth title down-under at Lake Karrinyup CC in Perth goes to the BURLY Thai.

The 'Rat' played no less than 93 holes (the 18th 15 times!). He played at pace and thrived on repeatedly being faced by holes he couldn't afford to lose. He required a four hole play-off after 54 holes just to get to Sunday, beat Ben Eccles in the first round (1 hole), needed 11 holes in round two to get past Yusaku Miyazato (5th Super Hole), his quarter-final went to the last hole before he overhauled Sean Crocker and even his semi-final was extended as he defeated Lucas Herbert (1st Super Hole).
Thanks for all your contributions on the thread especially from the [i]local
rhino Tongue Out
In the final Kiradech made bogey at No. 1 and failed to get up-and-down at the second to lie 1-down. But a safe par when Nitties was in trouble at the third got him back in it, he sensed weakness in his opponent and pressed. Aphibarnrat drove the 330-yard par-4 fourth and drained the 6'0" putt to go 1-up then made birdie-2 at the fifth from 10'0" and punched the air in celebration: no need to play 18 yet again ![/i]
Thanks again Crazy

Note I previously mentioned Kiradech Aphibarnrat as the 2013 Maybank Malaysian Open winner in Kuala Lumpur G&CC. Kiradech (backed him at @ 50/1 in Malaysia), the 2013 winner as a 23yo - big guy with a big reputation on this course - third in 2010 and third in CIMB Classic in 2013. That win was against the likes of Edoardo Molinari, Victor Dubuisson (nb), Charl Schwartzel & Pablo Larrazabal. Aphibarnrat was T45 in Abu Dhabi and T38 in Qatar on his previous two starts.

Nicknamed ‘Asia’s John Daly’ for his burly frame and go-for-broke style of play, he won his age group at the Junior World Golf Championships in 2003 and 2004 - and not to be confused with the other Thai with a burly physique, Prom Meesawat - The ‘Big Dolphin’.

Aphibarnrat said: “Special thanks to my caddie, he was always pushing me. When we were two behind on the last two holes he said you have not lost, we have not signed the scorecard yet and he was completely right and I just got the job done. I had a chance to win in 72 holes but the putt in the play-off is the best putt I have ever made in my life.”
The 25 year old has had a tough time since winning in Malaysia, adding: “I've been struggling for a year. I lost my coach (Natpasit Chokthanasart, who died in December 2013), changed my equipment. It's a big changing time after I won. It's been like that for a while. I haven't been at the top of the leaderboard but finally I had the chance to do it. It was tough to stay there.”
