Scandinavian Mixed format
The Scandinavian Mixed format is a 72-hole event. For the first two rounds, the players will go off in threesomes, mixing men and women as either one man and two women or two women and one man in the groups.
The men will play from their own set of tees, and the women will play from their own set of tees. The goal is to create equitable approach shots to holes.
Following the first two rounds, a cut will be made to the top 65 players and ties from the 156-player field. The players will be grouped together in mixed fashion, using the traditional way of sending players out on the weekend: based on their standing at the conclusion of the prior round.
The tournament winner will be the player, male or female, with the lowest combined score over the four rounds of the tournament.
Official World Golf Ranking and Rolex Women's World Golf Ranking points will be offer to players for their respective rankings, and the win will be considered official on the winner's home tour for the winner.
