As with the PGA Jr. League, the flagship youth pillar program of PGA Reach, the event will follow a two-person scramble format with all players wearing blue or orange numbered jerseys based on the division in which they are drafted. Teams with the highest point totals in each division will play with Curry and other special guests in a one-hole shootout to determine the overall winner of the inaugural competition.
