The Surf Coast Knockout is the newest event on the Australian golf calendar and it tees off on Thursday at The Sands in Torquay with a cool new format that will make final day viewing much more interesting than most golf tournaments.
I’ve added the key points you’ll need to know below including who is playing, all important new format and TV Times to catch the action if you can’t make it to the course. If you can make it to the course in Torquay, entry is free all tournament!

Four day tournament with the field cut to 32 for Sunday. The final day will see 32 players compete head-to-head over six holes, with ties to be decided by a specially designed knockout hole.
The Sands at Torquay is a fabulous golf course and resort on the southern coast of Victoria about 90 minutes drive from Melbourne.
Who will win?
Peter O’Malley did everything but win the Victorian PGA last week and Alistair Presnell has some great form too. I’d be inclined to think Wade Ormsby might do well after playing reasonably well at the Joburg Open last week by Andre Stolz is my pick. the guy has had a great summer and had three sub-70 rounds last week.
