Adam Scott picks Marc Leishman as Aussie 

World Cup partner

World Number Six Adam Scott has selected Marc Leishman, winner of six events worldwide, to be his partner for the upcoming World Cup of Golf to form one of the 28 two-man teams who will represent their countries at Kingston Heath Golf Club, from November 23-27.
Leishman, who was paired with Scott when he won his green jacket at The Masters in 2013, will be making his first World Cup of Golf appearance.
Winner of the 2012 Travelers Championship on the PGA TOUR, Leishman has five other international victories, including his most recent at the 2015 Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa on the European Tour last December.
Leishman’s selection to team with Adam Scott came after Jason Day announced last week that he was forced to withdraw due to a back injury.
The 2016 World Cup of Golf will return to a 72-hole, stroke-play, two-man team event format.  The first and third days of competition will be the foursomes format and the second and final days are four-ball play.
