Sullivan and Wood to play in the World Cup of golf
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.
