Scott, Day to form World Cup team

Adam Scott and Jason Day are expected to form Australia&aposs dream pairing at the ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in November. Neither player has officially committed to the championship but confirmation is expected later this week. Speaking to AAP in the United States, Masters champion Scott said he was looking forward to a four week celebration in Australia. “I am going to enjoy Australia so much,” Scott told AAP. “I am playing a golf event every week I am home so it will probably be a four-week tour of the green jacket.” “It&aposs going to be busy but I am going to enjoy it all. It is the one time in my life this can happen so it&aposs going to be great. I hope we get a good field at the World Cup and I&aposd like to play with Jason – that&aposs certainly the plan.” Day finished in the top 3 at both The Masters and U.S Open this year and said while some details needed to be finalised, he was looking forward to the occasion. “We haven&apost squared everything away just yet but I am excited at the prospect of representing my country and playing with Scotty at Royal Melbourne,” Day told AAP. “The atmosphere should be awesome and, together, I think we should have a great chance at winning with all the local support. I can&apost wait to get back and hopefully play some of my best golf.” American Matt Kuchar, Thailand&aposs Thongchai Jaidee, Italian Matteo Mannasero and Northern Ireland&aposs Graeme McDowell are among the early players who have confirmed their starts at the World Cup.
