As much as fans may love a good ole' fashioned major golf tournament, you have to admit, the assorted team-play events during Challenge Season are a lot of fun. On Friday, Dec. 13, the Franklin Templeton Shootout begins at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida. It will feature three rounds of assorted team-play objectives.

Two-man teams will battle for the right to take home the trophy. In 2012, Sean O'Hair and Kenny Perry were victorious and the team is back looking to become the first back-to-back winners since Hank Kuehne and Jeff Sluman completed the feat in 2003-2004.

The 12 teams will compete in three rounds and per, here's the structure.

First Round, Modified Alternate Shot - Each player hits a drive on every hole and one drive is selected. The player whose drive is NOT selected hits the second shot, and they alternate shots until the ball is holed.

Second Round, Better Ball - Each player plays through every hole using his own ball. The player whose score is the lowest on each hole will be the team score for that hole.

Final Round, Scramble - Each player hits a drive on every hole and the best drive is selected. Each player then plays a second shot from the spot where the selected drive lays, and the best second shot is selected. This process is repeated until the hole is completed.
