Scott happy with returning format at Golf World Cup
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.
