The PGA Tour heads to Avondale, Louisiana this week for the Zurich Classic, held at TPC Louisiana. Since 2017, the event has employed a two-man team format, with players playing two rounds of fourballs and two rounds of alternate shot. The first and third round is fourballs, which means each player plays his own ball each hole and the best score counts for the team. The second and final rounds are alternate shot, meaning one teammate tees off, the other hits the next shot and they continue to alternate until hole-ing out.

Returning to defend their title is the team of Billy Horschel and Scott Piercy, who parred the final seven holes a year ago to win by one stroke over Pat Perez and Jason Dufner. Perez is making his first start on tour since Bay Hill this week, having missed over a month due to a calf injury he suffered while working out before the Players Championship. He'll play alongside Dufner once again as they both look for their first win since 2017.

Other teams to watch this week include Sergio Garcia and Tommy Fleetwood, Jason Day and Adam Scott, and Jon Rahm and Ryan Palmer.
