OPENING SHOT

If you're wondering what the heck the European Tour's tournament this week, the Belgian Knockout is, here are the basics c/o the tour..

"The first two rounds will follow exactly the same format as a normal week on the European Tour; 36 holes of stroke play, followed by a Friday cut. The top 64 after two rounds will make it to the weekend.

The knockout matches begin on Saturday, when the remaining 64 players will be split into two groups.

Within the respective groups, three rounds of knockout matches will be played on Saturday over nine holes in a stroke play format. Whoever plays the nine holes in the lowest score in their match will progress to the next round. 

While one group of 32 will compete over the front nine holes, the other group will take on the back nine.

At the end of Saturday's play, there will be eight men left. The nine-hole knockout matches will continue on Sunday to determine the winner."

There you have it!
