The Zurich Classic can trace its roots back to 1938. But while the tournament has a storied past -- with a champions' roll call including Jack Nicklaus, Byron Nelson, Tom Watson and Gary Player -- the New Orleans event is the talk of the tour because of its present, thanks to the Zurich's new two-player team format. It is the first time since 1981 that the PGA Tour is hosting an official team event, and judging by the quality of the field, fans are not the only ones excited about this prospect. Alternate shot will be played in the first and third rounds, with a best-ball format in the second and fourth. Though OWGR credit and Masters invitations are not awarded, the winners will still receive FedEx Cup points and two-year tour exemptions. The field is comprised of 80 teams, with 35 making the cut.

The Golf Channel will carry live coverage on Thursday and Friday from 3:30 to 6:30 PM ET, and on the weekend from 1:00 to 2:30 PM ET. CBS will handle Saturday and Sunday coverage starting at 3:00 PM ET.
