The field for the Zurich Classic is set; see which PGA Tour pros are teaming up

The field for next week's Zurich Classic is set. Why is this a big deal? Because the tournament will feature a two-man team format for the first time.

No Official World Golf Ranking points will be available, but the winning squad will split more than $2 million and 800 FedEx Cup points. And the opportunity to partner with someone else has excitement surrounding the event at an all-time high -- and led to the creation of some high-powered pairings.

From the day the format change was announced, we knew about Jason Day-Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose-Henrik Stenson teams. Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer committed to the field last week, but now the full field of 80 tandems is set (One spot is being left open pending the results of this week's Valero Texas Open). Here's a look at the list, courtesy of the New Orleans Advocate:

The top 35 teams and ties will make the weekend. Alternate shot will be used in the first and third rounds, while best ball will be used in the second and fourth rounds, as well as for a sudden-death playoff if necessary. This is the first official PGA Tour event to use a team format since the 1981 Walt Disney Classic.
