Grass League by Grass Clippings (Fund IV) is launching a new prime-time Par-3 golf league this spring, in partnership with Bleacher Report, to showcase emerging talent and emphasize high-stakes, team-oriented play. The league's first event will be held at Grass Clippings Rolling Hills in Tempe, Arizona, and will feature a 36-hole, two-person scramble format. With 75 teams participating, including 20 "Franchise Teams," the league aims to refocus competitive golf on team camaraderie and away from the individual-centric formats seen in other tours. The event will be broadcasted on Bleacher Report's platforms and TruTV.
