Day, Scott to play World Cup for Australia

Jason Day and Adam Scott will be playing for the Australian flag in the World Cup of Golf this November at Kingston Heath in Melbourne, Australia.

Commitments were announced Monday just one day after golf made a strong return to the Olympics after a 112-year absence. Day and Scott, both among the top 10 in the world, did not play in the Rio Games.

Masters champion Danny Willett will play for England with Lee Westwood.

The Americans will be represented by Bubba Watson, who has not yet selected his partner. Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth, the top two Americans, chose not to play in the World Cup, giving the spot to Watson.

The World Cup of Golf is Nov. 24-27, one week after the European Tour season ends in Dubai.
