Golf World Cup leaves China for Australia

The International Federation of PGA Tours has announced that Australia will host the Golf World Cup at Royal Melbourne in November. The news was announced by the PGA, the Australian state of Victoria and the International Golf Association on Sunday.



The revamped $8 million World Cup is due to take place from the 21st till the 24th of November this year, and will be the fourth time Australia has hosted the event. Hosted at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, the venue will stage back-to-back events throughout the month of November, hosting the Australian Masters straight after the World Cup.Rory McIlroy
This will be the first time the sporting event has been held outside of China since 2006. Speaking on its return to Australia PGA tour commissioner, Tim Finchen, said: “We're thrilled that the World Cup will return to Australia, bringing this historic event to a venue, city and country that have hosted the biggest and best international sporting events for many years."

"This is a great day for golf and a great day for Australia," added Brian Thorburn, chief executive of PGA Australia. “The addition of the World Cup will complement an already strong swing of tournaments including the Australian PGA, Open and Masters and will significantly boost the international player prospects for these events."Justin Rose
The years’ tournament will have a total purse of US$8 million, returning to an individual stroke-play competition for $7 million, with a team component, which adds the total scores of two-man teams, for $1million.

Up to four players can qualify per country, as long as they are in the top 15 of the official rankings, and unlike events such as the Olympics, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be recognised as individual nations.
