This week's European Tour event in Perth, Australia, combines strokeplay and matchplay. Check out course and current form stats compiled by Andy Swales...

"Days one to three remains the normal diet of strokeplay, after which the leading 24 players will contest the Super 6 matchplay phase of the tournament on Sunday"

Super 6 golf returns this week in Australia, where this innovative new format is given a second airing.

Last year's inaugural ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth was deemed a success and is having another run out at Lake Karrinyup.

How It Works

Days one to three remains the normal diet of strokeplay, after which the leading 24 players will contest the Super 6 matchplay phase of the tournament on Sunday.

Those who qualify for day four in Perth will swap strokeplay for matchplay, with the latter stages of the tournament involving 24 head-to-head ties - each played over six holes.

If any of these matchplay games remain tied through to the end, then the pair will undertake a sudden-death play-off on a specially built hole of around 100 yards in length - utilising the 18th green.

And if the players are still level after this seventh hole, they will return to the tee to participate in a nearest-the-pin shootout to determine who progresses through to the next round - or win the tournament if it happens to be the final.

The Course

The 90-year-old Lake Karrinyup layout is an undulating, parkland course, with wide tree-lined fairways.

It has hosted four Australian Opens and was redesigned by Geoff Ogilvy and Mike Clayton in 2007.

Mediocre Field

However, the field for this week's tournament is decidedly mediocre.

The highest-ranked golfer is Japan's Satoshi Kodaira, the world No 37, who does happen to be in good form right now.

Kodaira, who makes his Lake Karrinyup debut, has already posted a brace of runner-up finishes on the Asian Tour during 2018, having won on home soil in November at the once prestigious Taiheiyo Masters.

Lee Westwood showed signs of life last week in Malaysia, where he tied-11th, as he seeks a first European Tour title since April 2014.

Anzac Challenge

This week's event is being tri-sanctioned by the tours of Europe, Asia and Australasia, with the Anzac-based challenge looking pretty strong in such a low-key gathering.

New Zealander Ryan Fox arrives in Western Australia on the back of a podium finish at Saujana, where he closed with a 66.

A trio of Aussies, who have shown a liking for the course in the past, are Jason Scrivener, Wade Ormsby and Brett Rumford.

Scrivener was third two years ago, before reaching the semi-finals of the Super 6 matchplay in 2017.

Although he missed the cut in Malaysia, it was only by a single shot, having tied-for-sixth in Dubai the previous week.

Defending champion Rumford not only picked up the trophy 12 months ago, he was also the leading qualifier through 54 holes.

There have been two other top-10 finishes at Lake Karrinyup, for the 40-year-old, although Rumford's current form has not been great. His most recent top-10 came at this event 12 months ago.

As with most shoot-out style competitions, it is always tough trying to track down a potential champion.

American Paul Peterson appears to be in better form than most of those assembled in Perth.

And while this may enable him to survive the 54-hole chop, matches staged over six holes have the potential to become nothing more than a lottery, although a strong nerve will always come in handy on Sunday.
