Zurich Classic 2017 Live Stream Watch Online, Live stream online, Odds, TV channel, start time, how to watch Thursday online A format change to two-man teams has made the Zurich Classic now a must-watch and one of the more exciting events of the entire, Zurich Classic 2017 live.
Thursday’s first round will feature the alternate shot foursomes format. That could get wild as players try to adapt to their partners’ ball, which seems small, but is a major change at this highest level of the game. We hear about it at every Ryder Cup. Golf Channel will have their customary three-hour block of coverage for the opening round.
The Zurich Classic has gone from one of the sleepiest lower-tier events on the PGA Tour schedule to a must-watch in 2017. That’s because the PGA Tour made the radical, by their standards, decision to switch up the format at the Zurich and finally bring a two-man team contest to the PGA Tour. It’s the first such format since 1981 and a welcome deviation from the week-to-week monotony of 72-hole stroke play events.
“Best ball, they could take it pretty deep,” said Koepka. “I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw 12, 13, something like that. But alternate-shot, you have to get off to a good start the first day if you want to have any kind of chance.”
