A major stop on the annual Professional Golfers Association (PGA) Championship Tournament Circuit, the Zurich Classic began life as the New Orleans Open in 1938. Since that time the tourney has gone through numerous title sponsorships and three other venues before arriving at its present-day name and location. 

The Zurich Classic is played every year during the final week of April at the Tournament Players Club roughly 15 miles west of downtown New Orleans. The TPC, completed in the early 2000s, offers all of the amenities of a modern golf course, in addition to being maintained in absolute peak condition at all times.


This year, the Zurich Classic is debuting a new two-man team, 72-hole stroke play format. There will be two rounds each of Foursome and Four-Ball Competition. The full list of TOUR member participants will be announced closer to date, but many high-profile players have already committed, such as Jason Day with Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose with Henrik Stenson. 80 teams will participate in the starting round.
