What do you get if you cross the Challenge Tour, the Ladies European Tour and the Staysure Tour?

Simple: golf’s newest tournament innovation.

The Jordan Mixed Masters was unveiled today ahead of its debut at Ayla Golf Club in Jordan next April.

The field will consist of 123 players: 40 from each of the three tours and one leading amateur from the men’s, ladies’ and over-50s' games. They will compete against each other in a single, mixed field.

Members from the three tours will tee off from different yardages but will compete in a single competition. The three-day event will see the field cut to 60 for the final day’s play, competing for the grand prize. The leading best finishers from the other two tours will also receive a special accolade.
