Sul­li­van and Wood to play in the World Cup of golf

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Euro­pean Ry­der Cup stars Andy Sul­li­van and Chris Wood will rep­re­sent Eng­land at the World Cup of Golf this month. The pair will play af­ter Danny Wil­lett’s with­drawal with a back in­jury last week and Justin Rose’s de­ci­sion not to fea­ture as he is still re­cov­er­ing from his own back prob­lem. Rose’s call to turn down the in­vite al­lowed Wood to com­mit to the event and he se­lected Sul­li­van as his play­ing part­ner. Lee West­wood had ini­tially been lined up to play along­side Wil­lett, but he will no longer fea­ture in the end of sea­son event in Aus­tralia. Mean­while, Alex Noren, who won his fourth Euro­pean Tour ti­tle of the sea­son at the week­end in South Africa, will team up with David Ling­merth to rep­re­sent Swe­den. Also on his own hot streak is Hideki Mat­suyama, who will be paired with fel­low Ja­panese ace Ryo Ishikawa. The tour­na­ment takes place at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Mel­bourne from Novem­ber 24-27, with 28 twoman teams rep­re­sent­ing their coun­tries.
