Wood and Sullivan England's World Cup pairing

ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf  tournament officials have announced changes to the field including the withdrawal of Danny Willett and Jamie Donaldson.
Willett's withdrawal means that Justin Rose, the next highest-ranked player from England in the Official World Golf Ranking taken the week after the US PGA Championship, was invited. 
Rose, who is still recovering from his back injury, opted not to play but the next highest-ranked Englishman, Chris Wood, committed to the event. 
Wood was then able to select his playing partner, choosing Andy Sullivan which means that Lee Westwood no longer has a start in this year’s event. 
Wood is playing in the event for the second time in his career, while Sullivan will be making his debut for England. Both players, who have secured three victories apiece on the European Tour, made their Ryder Cup debuts at Hazeltine National in September. They also represented Europe at the start of the year in the Eurasia Cup.
In addition to the changes for England, Donaldson recently withdrew from the Wales team with Bradley Dredge selecting Stuart Manley as his playing partner.
The ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf will bring together the world’s top golfers to compete at Kingston Heath Golf Club, Melbourne in Australia  from November 24-27, with 28 two-man teams representing their countries. 
Alex Noren, a four-time European Tour winner this season, will team up  with Dvid Lingmerth to represent Sweden at the World Cup of Golf.
