2018 World Cup of Golf: TV Times, Live Scoring

The national flags fly as the Metropolitan Golf Club readies for the World Cup

MARC LEISHMAN AND CAMERON SMITH carry Australia’s hopes this week as the Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne hosts the 2018 World Cup of Golf.

Two man teams from 28 countries will fight for a $7 million prize pool in a four day special teams format at the renowned sandbelt course.

Leishman did no good with partner Adam Scott at the last World Cup down the road at Kingston Heath two years ago but maybe the introduction of the in form young Smith will spur the team on.

The Aussie duo tees off in the opening Fourball on Thursday in the final group at 10.35am (the tee times brought forward and hour due to expected bad weather) alongside another strong chance in Americans Matt Kuchar and Kyle Stanley.

Defending champions Thorburn Elesen and Soren Keldsen from Denmark are in the preceding group alongside the Englishmen paring of noted sandbelt fan Ian Poulter and compatriot Tyrrell Hatton.

The winner could easily come from those groups, but you get the sneaking suspicion it will come from somewhere else in what is a very talented field – a field that also includes the likes of last week’s runaway Australian Open winner, Mexico’s Abraham Ancer.



The Format

Rounds 1 and 3 will be Fourball (Best ball) play, and rounds 2 and 4 will be Foursomes (alternate shot) play.
