 This year, the clubs are going to tee it up with their best 11 players and professional. The Challenge Cup starts with best matches Saturday and individual match play on Sunday. Roy Steinberg said.

"What we did this year was we had the opportunity for the best players to qualify. So, then there is no questions about or we just picked the best players in the club."
