GolfSixes tee times and pairings
Let the games begin.....
The much anticipated GolfSixes match between England and England Women starts at 12:04 on Saturday May 5, with Eddie Pepperell and Matt Wallace going up against Georgia Hall and Charley Hull.
The action at Centurion Club begins at 10.52 with Team USA striking the first tee shot as they take on the European Women’s team. Daniel Im and David Lipsky will tee it up against Carlota Ciganda and Mel Reid before Team Denmark begin their defence of the title they won at last year’s GolfSixes, with Lucas Bjerregaard and Thorbjørn Olesen facing the Thai duo of Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Thongchai Jaidee.
The Ryder Cup Captain Thomas Bjørn and his Solheim Cup counterpart Catriona Mathews, who make up the Captains Team, will make European Tour history when they become the first male and female professionals to play together in a competitive match play format when they take on Team Spain in their first match at 11:28.
In fixtures more familiar with rugby’s Six Nations, France play Italy at 11:40, followed by Scotland against Ireland at 11:52.
Defending champions Denmark and the European Women kick off the second session of the day at 12:35, with each of the 16 teams jockeying for position as they bid to secure their places in the Sunday knock out stages.
Saturday’s third and final session starts at 15:17, with Thailand taking on Ciganda and Reid. The final putt will drop just before 18:00, as England and South Africa compete in the final game of the day.
In the group stage three points will be given for victory with one point awarded for a draw and the matches will be played in a greensomes match play format. The top two teams from each of the four groups will progress to Sunday’s knockout stages.
The first quarter-final on Sunday will tee off at 12:40, followed by the semi-finals and third/fourth place play-off, with the final match teeing off at 16:35.
Any tied matches on Sunday will go to a specially constructed play-off hole. If the match is still tied, it will be settled by a closest to the pin challenge on the same hole.
