Here’s a closer look at the 12 teams that will be competing for the $3.8 million purse.

Harris English and Matt Kuchar

Three-time QBE Shootout winners Matt Kuchar and Harris English will team up for the eighth time at this year's tournament.

English and Kuchar, three-time winners of the QBE Shootout, will partner for the eighth time. The most successful duo in the history of the tournament, this team also scored second place (2014, 2015). The duo hold the tournament record for largest margin of victory, nine strokes in 2020.

Max Homma and Kevin Kisner

Homma and Kesner finished fifth in last year’s shootout in their first pairing. Kisner would play in his sixth QBE match and finished fourth in 2016 when he partnered with Kevin Chappell. Homa has won three times on the TOUR in the past year, including a successful defense of the 2021 Fortinet Championship this fall. Both were members of this year’s winning US Presidents’ Cup team, which Homa lost 4-0 in his debut.

Nelly Korda and Denny McCarthy

The LPGA's No. 1 ranked player, Nelly Korda, will play in her first QBE Shootout.

Korda (24) and McCarthy (29) will be the youngest on the field this year and both are making their Shootout debuts. The last time a junior team won the QBE Shootout was Keegan Bradley and Brendan Steele in 2011. Korda and McCarthy combined for over a dozen finishers this calendar year, with Korda taking seven and McCarthy’s five.

Trey Moulinex and Scott Stallings

Mullinax will be making his Shootout debut. This will be Stallings’ second appearance and first since 2011. Mullinax won the Barbasol Championship this summer for his first PGA Tour victory. Stallings finished seven times in the top 10 this past season, including runner-up in the FedEx Cup qualifying round for BMW.
