Greg Norman, host of the Franklin Templeton Shootout, has announced the pairings for the 24th annual Franklin Templeton Shootout, which will take place at Tiburon Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Fla., Dec. 5-9.

Throughout the years, the Shootout has contained many of golf’s greatest players. The post-season event will once again feature a modified alternate-shot format during the first round, best ball on Saturday and a final-round scramble.

Here is a closer look at the 12 teams for the 2012 Franklin Templeton Shootout:

Fredrik Jacobson & Greg Norman: These two will be playing together for the first time. Norman will be making his 23rd appearance

Keegan Bradley & Brendan Steele: The defending champions will attempt to do something that has not been accomplished since 2004—win back-to-back titles.
