The Franklin Templeton Shootout is a team golf event that takes place on the PGA Tour. It is an unofficial money event originally played after the season but now played during the wrap-around season's December break.

The event began in 1989, and is hosted by legendary golfer Greg Norman. The event takes place at Tiburón Golf Club in Naples, Florida, a WCI community featuring 36 holes of Norman-designed golf. The Shootout is a 3-day, 54-hole stroke play event in which teams of two compete. The format in 2014 was: first round – scramble format; round two – modified alternate shot (i.e. greensomes) rule; final round – better ball (i.e. fourball) rule.[1]

Broadcasting history

The event was originally broadcast in the United States by the USA Network and CBS, with USA broadcasting the first round on a tape-delayed basis, and CBS handling the second round live. Not all the country saw the final round live, as CBS's commitment to the NFL only allows part of the country to see the round as it takes place, with the rest of the U.S. seeing the event beginning at 4 p.m. Eastern Time. In 2007, the event was moved to December, and was broadcast live by both Golf Channel and NBC. It remained on these networks through 2013.

In 2014, weekend coverage moved to Fox, for which host Norman is an analyst. The telecast served as a prelude to Fox's coverage of the 2015 U.S. Open.[2]
