( CBS Miami ) — The Zurich Classic of New Orleans was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. But the PGA Tour returns to TPC Louisiana this week for what’s become one of the game’s more unique events . Rather than 18 holes of individual play for four days, golfers pair up to play two rounds of best-ball and two rounds of alternate shot. The tournament will start with the best-ball format . That means each teammate plays each hole, and the team records the better of the two outcomes. The second round will feature the alternate-shot format. One player on a team tees off, and the other plays the next shot from where the first ends up. The teammates alternate shots until holing the ball and then record the total score. The two players on a team alternate tee shots. Saturday returns to best-ball, and Sunday will be alternate shot again. A field of 80 teams plays the first two rounds, with 33 teams making the cut to play on the weekend.

Apple and Google’s market power over digital app stores will be in the hot seat Wednesday at the Senate Judiciary antitrust subcommittee’s hearing on app store fairness. The Silicon Valley giants have come under fire over their app stores’ policies, especially over the 15 to 30 percent fees they collect from app developers. Without alternatives to the Google and Apple stores on the companies’ products, developers are largely reliant on the systems they’re critical of to reach consumers. As Congress continues to weigh the market power of the companies, their controversial app store policies have prompted proposed state legislation to allow apps to circumvent the fees, as well as a key court case between Epic Games and Apple that is set to go to trial next month. ADVERTISEMENT “The abusive practices in the App Store are blatantly anti-competitive,” Mark Cooper, director of research at the Consumer Federation of America, told The Hill. “The platform operators and … [Read more...] about Big Tech set to defend app stores in antitrust hearing
