Scott happy with re­turn­ing for­mat at Golf World Cup

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Adam Scott is look­ing for­ward to team­ing up with Marc Leish­man in the World Cup of Golf and is pleased it has once again be­come a team event. For­mer world No. 1 Scott and Ja­son Day won the last edi­tion in 2013 when there was an in­di­vid­ual for­mat. This time around it will be a two-player team event be­tween 28 na­tions. The first and third days will see the teams com­pete in al­ter­nate shot play while the sec­ond and fi­nal days are best ball. Speak­ing about the event in 2013, Scott said: “It was great to win, but it was a shame that we didn’t play one round to­gether through the event. “It didn’t have that team feel even though we were play­ing as a team, so this week will be a lot more fun for Marc and my­self go­ing around to­gether all four rounds.” The tour­na­ment starts to­day at Mel­bourne’s Kingston Heath and Aus­tralia, Eng­land and the USA are viewed as the favourites. Eng­land are rep­re­sented by Andy Sul­li­van and Chris Wood, while USA have Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker.
